Creamy Lemon and Garlic Pasta with Artichoke Hearts

i needed dinner in a hurry last night. i had 2 children otherwise engaged (thank you finding Nemo) and about 15 min.

pasta! lemons! artichoke hearts! garlic! oh yay!
here's what i came up with:

yum, right? i concur.

Creamy Lemon & Garlic Pasta with Artichoke Hearts
You Need:
1/2 box angel hair pasta
1 lemon (zested & cut in 1/2)
10 artichoke hearts (chopped)
1 3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup grated Parmesean Cheese
1 tblsp minced garlic
2 tblsp butter
salt & pepper (to taste)
fresh basil (to taste- you can also use dry if you have no fresh on hand)

Directions: Salt a pot of water & put it on to boil (add a splash of EVVO as well). Cook the angel hair according to directions & drain.
Using the same pot: Melt the butter over medium heat. Toss in the garlic, lemon zest, the juice of the lemon, the artichoke hearts, salt & the pepper. Saute for a few minutes (don't let the garlic burn!)
Stir in the sour cream, parmesean & basil.
Allow the mixture to cook or a minute or so- once heated through, add the pasta & toss to coat.
Sprinkle with some basil & eat up.


This was also good the next day for lunch. I simply re-heated in the micro & added a little cream to moisten.

Pin It!
