Didn’t go shopping? You don’t have to give up on a homemade dinner! Grab the perfect pantry staple, pasta, and a few other ingredients you probably have around your kitchen, and you have a delicious shrimp penne dinner in only 20 minutes.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the penne according to package directions. Drain and reserve.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and garlic and cook until aromatic and just starting to brown (about 30 seconds). Stir in the red pepper, artichokes, and olives and heat through. Stir in the shrimp and penne.

Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Just before serving, stir in the basil.
