This creamy, rich artichoke sauce has that “so bad for you” taste but is actually good for you! Don’t you love it when that happens?
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of dry penne
  • 6 oz jar of artichokes
  • 1 tbsp of parmesan
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • ¼ cup of onions, chopped
  • 2 cups of spinach, shredded
  • ¼ cup of tomato, chopped
Instructions
  1. First, start to cook your pasta by the package directions.
  2. While the water is boiling and the pasta is cooking, empty the jar of artichokes, with the oil, into a blender along with the lemon and the parmesan. Blend well.
  3. Pour the blended artichokes into a small pan or pot and place over medium-low heat to warm the sauce.
  4. Now, pour the olive oil into another pan and place it over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for a couple of minutes or until the onions are softened. Then add the spinach and tomato and cook for another couple of minutes or until the spinach is just wilted.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and return the pasta to the pot. Pour the artichoke sauce over top and stir together. Top with the onion, tomato and spinach.
