Lemony Shrimp with Artichoke Hearts on Multi Grain Linguine

We have wanted to make this wonderful shrimp dish for awhile now, but we finally got the chance last weekend.  This is a perfect dish for Lenten meals, and comes together quickly. The shrimp is sauteed in a lemony,  garlic, wine sauce with  Herbes de Provence and artichoke hearts added in.with fresh basil. The shrimp and sauce is then served over multi grain Linguine, or any pasta of your choice. You can sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the top if you want. The sauce is so good and lemony, and the shrimp and artichoke hearts pair nicely. You could even serve this for company with a nice glass of white wine.  You will not be disappointed, when you make this one. Enjoy!

    1. The artichoke hearts were in water and drained, which worked out well for this dish. We didn't want the artichokes to over power the sauce.

      Thank you for stopping by my blog, and hope to see you again.

  10. Becky-Sure glad I didn't miss your beautiful Lemony Shrimp, which you could also use for the #greelove with the artichoke and basil addition. This sure is my favorite kind of pasta dish bursting with the lemon flavor and I love shrimp so much...can't get enough of it!
    Beautiful photos, the pretty blue plate really compliments the dish!

    Congratulations on Top 9...well deserved!
