Shrimp, Tasso Ham and Artichoke With Creole Lemon Butter

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 12 mins

Quick and easy pasta at its best. By the time your pasta is cooked, the sauce will be done! Can't get any better! If you can't find Tasso ham, you can use prosciutto, pancetta, bacon or Virginia ham--though none of those has the deep salty flavor of Tasso. As for the artichokes, use fresh or frozen or the ones in brine in tins -- not the kind that are marinated in oil.
