This creamy, rich artichoke sauce has that “so bad for you” taste, but is actually good for you.
By Erica Scime
I love artichoke dip. It is pure comfort. But the calories and fat? Not so much.
That’s how I got the idea to make an artichoke pasta sauce that is like a healthy, pared down version of the dip. Like the dip, this sauce is big in artichoke flavor and is just as creamy. The sauce may not be as cheesy and gooey as the dip but the parmesan in it goes a long way. Over penne, this artichoke pasta sauce is a tasty, comforting dish. But a couple handfuls of spinach and a few slices of tomato, both of which I used in this recipe, give this dish a fresh pop of flavour.Print
