My husband was getting ready to go out of town and I needed to whip up a quick dinner. I had some sliced mushrooms in the refrigerator and decided to make them the star attraction. I love just about anything Mexican and this dish is not too spicy. (Although, feel free to add some kick if that is your style!)
You can experiment with adding more ingredients, like black beans, corn or even Soyrizo. The possibilities are as big as your imagination.
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.
My dear friend gifted me with some amazing zucchini this past weekend. I started thinking of some culinary opportunities. The original options of stir-fry, zucchini bread and ratatouille came to mind but I wanted something extraordinary.
A casserole, perhaps, but something with a Mexican flavor. This came together in a matter of minutes and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
You can add your own flair by topping it with fresh avocado slices, cilantro or simply a dash of lime juice.
