Growing up I loved eating artichokes. My parents would simply steam them and we’d dip each leaf in olive oil and balsamic. I also loved stuffed artichokes with Italian breading stuffed inside…YUM! While thinking of an artichoke recipe I realized what a perfect vessel it is to hold my pasta! Thus, the Artichoke Pasta Bowl was born! I kept it green with spinach spaghetti and sautéed it with a lovely group of aromatics.
FUN FACT: The Cynarin in artichokes is the element that can rid your body of cholesterol and also have the highest antioxidant levels of all vegetables!
