Trofie Artichokes&Shrimps&CherryTomatoes

2 person | 25min.


What you need

  • 250gr. Trofie (fresh pasta made of durum wheat flour, a pinch of salt and water)
  • 200gr. shrimp, peeled
  • 2 artichokes
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • Pine nuts/ hazelnuts
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 glass dry white wine
  • fresh lemon zest
  • Parsley
  • Salt
  • fresh ground Black Pepper

For Garnish

  • Fresh chopped parsley



Heat up a large pan with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and 1 garlic glove over medium-high heat. Place the shrimps in the pan for 2 min on each side, seasoned with salt and pepper and some drops of wine. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.


Fill a large pot 2/3 of the way with water. Wait for the water to boil and add salt. Add Trofie to the water and stir occasionally. Cook for 5-6 minutes.

Add the other tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and saute the garlic for one minute.

Add in the cut artichokes and cook for 3-4 minutes.

Add cherry tomatoes and stir them together.

Pour in the white wine and stir to deglaze the pan for 1 minute. Add in lemon zest, salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Take the lid off, add the shrimp back into the pan and let cook for 5 minutes to reduce the sauce.

Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a separate pan.

Taste for seasonings, then garnish with chopped parsley and pine nuts to serve.
