Recipe Ingredients for Mediterranean Shrimp & Whole Wheat Linguini

1/4 oz. italian spices, dried
8 oz. mushrooms, cremini
18 black olives, kalamata, chopped
1 pound pasta, linguini, whole wheat
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp
14 oz. artichoke hearts, canned
14 1/2 oz. tomatoes, small diced, canned, drained
1 green pepper, small diced
1/2 red onion, large, small diced
12 oz. roasted red peppers, diced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup white wine, dry
2 oz. reduced fat feta cheese
4 tablespoons olive oil

Recipe Directions for Mediterranean Shrimp & Whole Wheat Linguini

  1. Saute shrimp on very high heat with a little of the chopped garlic, salt & pepper. Cook only half way. Shrimp should be starting to turn pink and have a little browning from the high heat. Remove from pan and set aside. Deglaze the pan with a little of the wine or stock and reserve with the shrimp.

  2. Return pan/pot to high heat with a little olive oil. When smoking hot add diced green pepper and diced red onion. Cook for a few minutes until starting to look translucent and add remaining garlic. Cook one minute longer. Add sliced mushrooms, sliced black olives and italian seasoning. Cook approx 1-2 minutes longer.

  3. Add diced roasted red pepper, drained can of diced tomatoes, lemon juice, par-cooked shrimp from earlier, wine and chicken stock, and half of chopped parsley. Season to taste with additional salt & pepper. Bring to boil and reduce heat. Can serve immediately or cook for an additional few minutes. Remember however that the longer you cook the sauce the more over cooked the shrimp will be.

  4. Toss (don't just put on top...you want all noodles getting covered with sauce) mixture with freshly cooked pasta. Sprinkle top with reduced fat feta cheese crumbles and remaining chopped parsley.

  5. Can change out chicken for shrimp to lower cholesterol. Great with grilled/blackened, boneless/skinless chicken thighs.
