Pasta with Artichokes and Tomatoes
This is a really easy pasta dish to whip up anytime. I just made it up using ingredients I had on hand. I used Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Pasta which is gluten free, 1 can of artichokes drained (not marinated), 1 can of diced tomatoes (unsalted), olive oil, Parmesan cheese, dill, garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
I cooked the pasta according to the directions on package. While that was going I heated up some olive oil in a large frying pan, added the artichokes, tomatoes with juice, cheese and seasonings. I let all the ingredients simmer stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Once the pasta was done and drained I scooped some onto a plate and topped it with the artichoke and tomato mixture. It was so delicious. The flavors went really well together.
This also made great left overs. I just kept the pasta and topping in separate containers so the pasta didn’t get soggy. But it heated up nicely in the microwave at work.
Other things I could try: pine nuts, kalamata olives, black olives, feta cheese, roasted bell peppers, roasted garlic, etc. I love recipes that can be experimented with. Enjoy!
