Description

This is such an easy throw-together dinner, made almost entirely of pantry items and can be adapted according to whatever ingredients you have on hand. There’s no meat in it, though. So have some grilled chicken or steak on hand if you reside with wolves.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
  • 1 can Artichoke Hearts (14.5 Oz. Quartered Or Whole) Drained
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes With Juice (14.5 Oz.)
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ cups Chicken Broth (More As Needed)
  • ½ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound Thin Spaghetti
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese, Freshly Grated
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Chives (or Other Herbs) Chopped

Preparation

Cook spaghetti till al dente. Drain and set aside.

Melt olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add artichoke hearts and tomatoes. Stir and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cream and chicken broth. Add salt and pepper to taste (do not undersalt!) Cook over low heat until heated through, then turn off heat.

Place drained pasta in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1 cup Parmesan. Pour sauce over the top. Add chives. Toss lightly to combine and coat; add a tiny bit of reserved pasta water if sauce seems too thick.

Delicious!

We loved this pasta. I added some red pepper flakes to give it a little kick.

My family loved this dish even though I was talking to my husband and forgot to add the nutmeg. Didn’t have cream but did have half and half. Wish there had been leftovers for lunch but they ate it all.

Sigh!! Pasta + artichokes + cream sauce = simply divine. It was a quick meal to make, but it would please a crowd. I love the little hint of nutmeg in with the sauce. I think next time I might add few capers.

Very good! Not too creamy, but creamy enough to feel decadent. I added chicken so that the protein lovers in my family would eat it, and it was a huge success!

This is easy but so delicious and impressive that I would order it in a restaurant. I always add extra garlic and an extra jar of artichoke hearts, and we like quartered artichokes in this dish better than whole ones. The first time I made this for my husband, he took a picture to send to his mom to show her what a cook he had married! Wow!

YUMMY! What a great dish! Easy and good to make when you don’t know what to eat! Easy to keep all ingredients on hand! Will definitely make again!

If I have to pick a favorite PW recipe, this might be it. I make it just for myself to take to work for lunch!

For the first time EVER, I didn’t have to run to the store for the ingredients. I had everything. Still can’t believe that. It was delicious. I prepared it for lunch, then had a mid afternoon plateful, then dinner, and just finished a midnight snack. I’m glad my husband wasn’t here to see what a little piggy I was today. It was soooo good.
