Artichoke & Tomato Pasta
By looking at the ingredients I used, any idea where I like to do my grocery shopping? Wegmans is the bomb! If you don’t live close to one, I am sad for you. I buy a ton of their brand name items and have never had an issue with poor quality or inconsistency.
Grab your pot to begin boiling the water for your spaghetti. Honestly, you can use any type of pasta that you prefer. I usually like this quick dish with spaghetti or ziti. Use whole wheat, veggie, brown rice, or regular pasta, if you’d like. It is completely up to your preference or dietary needs. They will all work well.
Once the water is on, it’s time to heat your saute pan. I use a stainless steel multi-clad pan that needs to be heated before I put the olive oil in. I know when it’s ready for the oil when drops of water dance across the pan. Feel free to adjust the amount of garlic you use. I tend to use a lot of garlic.
When you add the tomatoes, make sure to leave them undrained. I don’t usually cover the saute pan for this, but you can while it’s simmering if you want it to cook down a bit more.
Once your spaghetti is strained and returned to the pot, you can either spoon the sauce mixture over the pasta when it’s plated, or you can toss the sauce into the pot of pasta and mix it together. you can’t go wrong either way.
