Cook pasta according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, heat olive in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the shrimps and cook until pink on both sides and just cooked through, about 3-4 minutes, turning once. Transfer cooked shrimps on a plate and set aside.
In the same pan, add onions/shallots and saute for about 2 minutes. Add garlic, tomato paste, anchovies, olives, capers, tomatoes, and water. Stir and cook it until the tomatoes begin to break down and sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Add more water if sauce is too thick.
Taste and season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Add back the cooked shrimps and cooked linguine to the sauce and combine well.
Chiffonade the basil (if using) and garnish on top of pasta before serving.
