Shrimp And Artichoke Pasta

Shrimp And Artichoke Pasta

This recipe hangs its hat on slow-roasted tomatoes, which I hope you made in abundance last summer and still have in your freezer. If you didn’t make them during tomato season, I forgive you, and –just this once — you can substitute oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes. I roast my tomatoes with garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, so they’re packed with flavor. Be sure to add garlic and thyme if you’re using plain slow-roasted or sun-dried tomatoes. Omit the shrimp if you want a vegetarian entree; use a different type of shellfish (mussels, scallops, clams) if you’re shopping at the fish market. With or without shrimp, this pasta dish, almost entirely from the pantry, makes a quick and easy worknight dinner.
