TD's Tomato Artichoke Pasta
by Tom Doyle
This recipe simply represents all of the things a hungry Bachelor, too weak from hunger to go out and eat, and too tired of delivery to pick up the phone, had in his pantry one day and he turned into an instant classic. I have fed this dish to hundreds of people over the years and can quart jars of it at Xmas time and give as gifts. I hope you enjoy it as much as my wonderful friends and family have. Ciao!
