Linguine with Grilled Shrimp & Black Olives

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/linguine_with_grilled_shrimp_black_olives.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 1995, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

The smoky mellowness of grilled shrimp plays against the powerful saltiness of olives in this lively summer pasta.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Put a large pot of lightly salted water on to boil.
  2. Thread shrimp onto skewers and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until just opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp from the skewers and cut each into 3 or 4 pieces. Set aside.
  3. While the shrimp is grilling, cook linguine until just tender, about 8 minutes. Drain but do not rinse.
  4. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until it just starts to brown, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, olives, the grilled shrimp and cooked linguine; cook, tossing, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, mix in the basil and season with pepper. Top with Parmesan, if using, and serve.
