Shrimp and Artichoke Pasta

A recipe? On a food blog? How odd....

Shrimp and Artichoke Pasta

small onion, minced
one garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 package frozen artichoke hearts or one can artichoke hearts (not marinated)
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 pound shrimp, frozen, fresh, whatever

Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil for 4-5 minutes. Add all the other ingredients except the shrimp. Simmer, covered, for ten minutes. Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp is thawed and/or cooked. Serve over pasta. I like Barilla Plus.

For a vegan, non-shellfish version, use vegetable broth, double the amount of artichokes, and omit the shrimp.


  1. This sounds so delicious. I wouldn't add the shrimp since middle child is allergic to them, but I'd probably add roasted chicken with this one. Thanks for sharing this one.

  2. Mmm, I bet roasted chicken would be really good in this. Come share ideas anytime!
