Penne Pasta with Artichoke Sauce Recipe
- 8 servings
in water not oil or all you will taste is oil
salt & pepper
Start heating up a large pot of water to cook the pasta.
Slice the onion thinly.
Finely chop the parsley. Chop the capers.
Drain and slice the artichoke hearts.
The pasta takes about 12 to 15 minutes to cook. The sauce takes even less time. So salt the water and heat it up to a boil.
While that is happening, prep the ingredients.
Once the water is boiling, add the penne and start making the sauce. (see my tips on cooking pasta)
Sauté the onion in the extra virgin olive oil.
Add the artichoke hearts and cook until the onions are pale gold.
Add the capers and tomatoes. Season with a little salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes to heat up the tomatoes and blend together the flavors.
When the pasta is al dente, drain and add to the artichoke sauce.
Serve (plate) and top with some of the chopped parsley and grated Parmesan.
Have a little extra Parmesan at the table for those who just can't get enough Parmesan cheese.
