Linguine with Escarole & Shrimp

Lots of tangy lemon, fresh tomatoes, escarole and shrimp create an incredible sauce for whole-wheat pasta. Serve with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and whole-grain bread.

Serves 6

Prep Time 45 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat linguine
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined raw shrimp, (16-20 per pound)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 16 cups thinly sliced escarole, (2-3 heads) or chard leaves
  • 1/4 cup clam juice, or water (see Shopping Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 6 lemon wedges, for garnish

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook linguine until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat 3 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook until pink and curled, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Step 3

Add garlic and the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add wine and cook until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes. Add escarole (or chard) in handfuls, stirring until it wilts before adding more; cook, stirring occasionally, until the greens are tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Whisk clam juice (or water) and cornstarch in a small bowl then add to the pan; simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the pan, add lemon juice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.

Step 4

Drain the linguine and return it to the pot. Add the sauce; toss to coat. Serve with lemon wedges.
