Pasta and Artichoke

This is one of my mom’s favorite pasta dishes. I’m not sure exactly how it came about other than the fact that mom loves pasta and is always trying to come up with new ways to make it. Also, she loves artichokes and was so pleasantly surprised when she found frozen artichoke hearts in the grocery store that are flavorful and fresh tasting. It definitely takes the work out of artichokes and the disappointment out of subpar fresh artichokes. The quality and convenience makes us much more inclined to make them. We tend to make this recipe more often in the summer time when fresh herbs are plentiful, but with fresh frozen artichokes, you can really make it all year long. I’ve even winterized it a bit by adding some tomato puree and swapping out the fresh herbs for a bit more grated cheese. It’s just as good for the colder months. I hope you enjoy the recipe and give it a try.
