My husband loves artichokes but when I told him my idea for this recipe he seemed less-than-excited. That is, however, until he tasted it.
I served the pasta on top of pan-grilled romaine leaves but any green would work. It is also good hot or cold and makes a great main or side dish.
Make sure that you use artichoke hearts in water, not oil.
Perfect for summer and so-much-lighter than the typical mayo-variety! Feel free to experiment and add whatever veggies you like best. It is also perfectly fine to use bottled salad dressing in place of the oil/vinegar/seasonings seen below.
Easy to make a day ahead and store in the refrigerator.
I used to be a cow’s milk cheese addict. Thankfully for me, the planet and, most importantly, the cows, I broke free of that lifestyle.
I have experimented with making nut cheeses and sauces and think that this creamy-delicious variety is the best.
Please feel free to experiment…if you like spicy, add some heat and if you prefer it with a South of the Border flair, try adding 1/8 cup of chopped cilantro. The possibilities are literally endless.
