Total Time: 45 mins

8 ounce(s) pasta, whole-wheat linguine
4 teaspoon oil, olive, extra virgin, divided
1 pounds shrimp, raw, (16-20/lb) peeled and deveined
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black ground, plus more for taste
2 tablespoon garlic, minced
1/2 cup(s) wine, white
1 pint(s) tomato(es), cherry, halved
16 cup(s) escarole, (about 2-3 heads) thinly sliced, or chard leaves
1/4 cup(s) clam juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 lemon, wedges, for garnish

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

2. Cook linguine until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.

3. 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.

4. Add garlic and the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds.

5. Add wine and cook until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes.

6. 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.

7. Whisk clam juice (or water) and cornstarch in a small bowl then add to the pan; simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.

8. 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.

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