Mediterranean Shrimp and Linguine Recipe

Pretty and healthy, this looks like it came from an Italian restaurant. When I’m in a rush, I use a jarred tomato sauce and omit the tomatoes and seasonings. You can also fix this ahead and reheat it for convenience. —Nancy Deans, Acton, ME

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2013

This recipe needs something. I liked the idea that it was healthy and quick, but it was rather tastless. As previous reviewer noted she is adding lemon juice. My husband suggested using Kalmata olives and maybe adding a quarter cup of liquid from the artichoke can to the vegetable mixture. It was just missing something. I will give it another shot with alterations.
