Artichoke Pasta


Ok people, THIS WAS GOOOOOOOOOD ! Really good !
I got the recipe here ... but I made a few amendments.
I'll give you the recipe the way I made it.
And, yeah, this was supposed to be Wednesday's dinner but when I did the
grocery shopping today ... well, this just sounded sooo good
that I had to try it tonight !!
~
1 (8 ounce) package spinach fettuccine
2 tablespoons olive oil (maybe a bit more ... didn't measure though)
5 cloves garlic, chopped
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
10 ounces marinated artichoke hearts
2/3 (8 ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted
2 ripe tomatos chopped OR 1 package cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta in boiling water until done. Drain. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Saute onions, mushrooms, and garlic until tender. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes and a bit of the oil in the jar, olives, artichoke hearts, wine, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by a third, about 4 minutes. Add in the tomatoes and toss pasta with sauce. Top with cheese, and serve.

Seriously, we loved this !!! Even the kids loved it
(minus the artichokes and sundried tomatoes ...)

I served it with this salad and a loaf of fresh bread.

Tried this last night...it was great. We added the tomatoes to soon though, so I think it would be WAY better if we didn't cook them and actually followed the recipe! :-) We have a GIANT jar of artichokes from Costco and we used some of the oil from the artichoke jar to saute the mushrooms, onions, and garlic in.
