  1. Prepare the artichokes: Squeeze the juice of a lemon into a large bowl of water. Remove the rough outer leaves and the bottom of the stem from the artichoke. Cut the artichokes into quarters. With a pairing knife, remove the choke. Slice the artichoke into thin strips (about 1/4 inch wide). Place into the bowl of lemon water.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the onion in the olive oil until translucent. Add the artichoke. After a minute or so, add the wine and allow to evaporate. Add about a cup of water. Cook covered for about 10 minutes. Remove the cover and allow most remaining liquid to evaporate. Add the cream and simmer for a few minutes, with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and add to the artichoke mixture.
  4. Serve immediately with a sprinkle of Parmigiano.


If fresh artichokes are not available, use a 16 ounce can of artichoke hearts packed in water.

Ed's Review

I. Hate. These.
Three. Word. Taglines.
Separated. By. Periods.

Discover. Interact. Optimize (For a web agency)
Strong. Stable. Secure (For a bank)
Tone. Burn. Sculpt. (For a fitness company)

Enough. Hopefully, someday they'll all be replaced by proper creativity. But until then, here is mine for Sunday Pasta: Tasty. Healthy. Cheap.

And for today's recipe: Artichoke. Pasta. Parmigiano.

Go get yourself some Tasty. Healthy. Cheap.

Buon Appetito!
