Linguini with Shrimp and Black Olives
Linguine con Gamberetti e Olive Nere
by James Belardo

Here’s a wonderful pasta dish that begins life as a simple ‘Aglio e Olio’ but grows into something rather special by adding a few simple ingredients.

Ingredients
2 or 3 cloves garlic
2 anchovies
1 1/2 cup medium sized shrimp (thawed/fresh – deveined)
1/2 – 3/4 cup Italian black olives (infornate preferred) hand-pitted
1/4 cup capers
3/4 – 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved or quartered)
Basil – fresh
Olive Oil
Flat Leaf Parsley – fresh
1 cup White wine (Pinot Grigio preferred)
Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes)
salt and Pepper
Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs

Pasta
Linguine, fettuccine or Spaghettini

Directions
1. While cooking the pasta, preheat 3 tablespoons of Extra-Virgin Olive oil in a saucepan with minced anchovies.
Sauté the #garlic and #Anchovies in #OliveOil
2. Sauté the garlic until it begins to brown, then toss in the fresh (deveined) or thawed frozen shrimp (precooked can be used).
Then throw in some #Shrimp...
4. After a few minutes, add 3/4 cup of white wine and let it come to a simmer.
3/4 cup of #White #Wine to the shrimp. Bring to simmer.
5. Add the olives and capers and let simmer for a few more minutes.
Some #Calabrian #Olives and #Capers...
6. Add the freshly lemon juice and let simmer for a couple of minutes before adding the sliced cherry tomatoes.
Can't beat freshly squeezed #LemonJuice
7. Let simmer until the tomatoes begin to break down.
A few #CherryTomatoes :-)
8. Add remaining wine and one spoonful of ‘pasta’ water before adding the liguine (al dente).
Add the #Spaghetti (whole wheat)
9. Toss in fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley before serving.
Some #Italian Flat leaf #Parsley
10. Top with Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs

Enjoy!
