Because refrigerated fresh pasta cooks much faster than dried pasta, this Italian pasta dish will be on the table lickety-split! Puttanesca, traditionally made with tomatoes, olives, capers, anchovies and garlic, gets a makeover with shrimp for extra protein and artichoke hearts to boost the vegetable servings (and the fiber!). If you can't find frozen artichoke hearts, sub in drained canned artichoke hearts.

I made several changes. We like spice so we added crushed garlic and used petite diced tomatoes instead of the sauce. I still felt it could use more flavor so next time I will use diced tomato with garlic and oregano. I will also add a little crushed red peppers to the olive oil before sautéing the shrimp. I topped the dish off with fresh grated Parmesan. It was quick and delicious! I will definitely make this again.
