Quick Shrimp Puttanesca


Because refrigerated fresh pasta cooks much faster than dried pasta, this Italian-inspired pasta dish will be on the table lickety-split! Puttanesca, traditionally made with tomatoes, olives, capers, anchovies and garlic, gets 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.

  • 8 ounces refrigerated fresh linguine noodles, preferably whole-wheat

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp

  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce

  • 1 ¼ cups frozen quartered artichoke hearts, thawed (8 ounces)

  • ¼ cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives

  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook linguine according to package instructions. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, until browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce. Add artichoke hearts, olives, capers and salt; cook, stirring often, until the shrimp is cooked through and the artichoke hearts are hot, 2 to 3 minutes longer.

  3. Add the drained noodles to the sauce and stir to combine. Divide among 4 pasta bowls. Serve hot.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
