TD's Tomato Artichoke Pasta

by Tom Doyle
(Pittsburgh, pa)

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!


INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 C olive oil
  • 2 Large Onion Chopped
  • 6 Garlic minced
  • 2 T. dry oregano
  • 4 T dry basil
  • 2 28 oz can of tomatoes diced in juice
  • 2 t Black peppercorns ?crushed?
  • 1 C Quartered brined artichoke hearts
  • 1 Pound cooked penne rigate

    PREPARATION

  • Sauté the onion in the olive oil until translucent.
  • Add the minced garlic, and sauté 2 minutes longer season liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Add the oregano and basil and toast for a few minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and simmer covered for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Add the peppercorn and the artichokes and simmer another 15 minutes covered, stirring occasionally, adjust seasoning if necessary.

    Serve over penne pasta with a warm garlic bread. Mmmmmm!

    I was skeptical at first but had some artichoke i had to use up. This recipe is awesome! I recommend using fresh garlic.

    Great for Artichoke lovers!!
    by: Gina H.

    I served this dish with a nice Merlot last weekend. My guests really enjoyed the sharp flavor of the artichokes. If I was to do it again, I may use 1 or 1 1/2 onions as they took away from the richness of the dish overall. Superb dish though! Highly recommended!

    Better than take-out any day!
    by: Geo

    This recipe is proof that eating great at home is easier (and better) than most take-out any day! ...A little romano cheese and some hard crust Italian bread, ...and if you're worried about getting your veggies, throw in a handful of fresh spinach. (or a lil chicken, or shrimp, or even Italian sausage if you're a big meat-eater.)
    Delizioso!

    I personally found this recipe to be fun to make, quick, and delicious. As a recent graduate of college, I have been learning to cook on my own and this recipe was easy to follow, took me 20 minutes, and was much healthier than ordering take out or delivery. I have been very happy with it, especially since I can make it for "guests" when they come over :)
