Cupid's Shrimp Pasta

Cooking for Valentine's Day is always a nice option. Choose something that you can cook quickly and pick up the items the day before so there is no need to be rushing around after a busy day. Artichokes have been thought of as aphrodisiac since Egyptian times. Why not include them in your special meal?

Cupid's Shrimp Pasta
 8 ounces uncooked linguine
 1 pound unpeeled, medium-size fresh shrimp
 1 (6.5oz) jar Cara Mia Artichoke Hearts in Water
1/4 cup of STAR Family Reserve Olive Oil with Lemon Peel
1/4 lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
6 plum tomatoes cut in half
Green onions for garnish

Cook linguine according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
Peel shrimp, and devein, if desired.
Sauté garlic in little of the olive oil in a large skillet until tender.
Stir in tomato; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Add shrimp, and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Add the rest of  the STAR Family Reserve Olive Oil with Lemon Peel, lemon juice, and Cara Mia Artichokes and cook just until thoroughly heated. Serve over linguine  and garnish with green onions.
