Skillet Shrimp and Artichoke Pasta

This Skillet Shrimp and Artichoke Pasta is one of my new favorite, healthy dinners to make in lass than 30 minutes. This makes eating healthy easy!

I’m new to this concept of making pasta in a skillet without boiling it first.

But I guess I’m new to a lot of cooking ideas.

I see so many one-pot or one-skillet recipes I had to see what all the hype was about. The wife, of course, told me she’s done it before – made a few different recipes for dinner that way…but I didn’t remember any of them. She loves that.

So once again, she showed me how to do it. I told her I wanted to do something light, it’s January so I guess that’s what we’re supposed to do, right?

Maybe something with shrimp and artichokes, two of my favorite ingredients.

This was one of the few recipes that we tried and that was it. Done. No need for do-overs, it was awesome just the way it was.

When you cook the pasta right in the skillet, it’s actually cooking with all the other flavors in the pan, right in the chicken broth. So it ends up tasting a lot better than if you had just cooked it in water.

So let’s get started – throw your shrimp into the hot skillet with some olive oil salt and pepper.

Cook the for a couple minutes on each side and take them out of the pan.

Next add in another tablespoon of olive oil and the chopped garlic, saute for a minute and throw in the artichoke heats and the tomato.

Now you’re going to add in the white wine.

Let it reduce for a minute, then add the chicken broth, lemon juice, salt and your pasta.

Give it a stir and then cover the skillet for 10 minutes on medium heat.

After 10 minutes, take the lid off, add the shrimp back in and let the pasta cook for another 5 minutes to reduce the sauce.

Garnish with some parsley and parmesan cheese and pour into big bowls to serve.

You might not ever boil pasta in plain old water again!

    This became a top favorite dish the very first time I made it. It is absolutely delicious, just as it is, no changes needed AT all. It’s super easy and creates very little mess in the kitchen, which is a HUGE plus. Best part is the taste though, SO good and I feel like I’m not being too unhealthful at the same time. Love, love, love this recipe!!

    I made this tonight and it was soooo good. Love that the sauce was flavorful but not heavy. i didn’t have the artichokes or tomatoes but we added freshly grated Parmesan, arugula, and squeezed lemon juice on top of ours and it was ah-mazing. Tasted like I got it from a restaurant but so simple. Thanks!
