If you like artichokes, then this is a good recipe for you to try since it’s basically just pasta and artichokes, which is fine with me! It’s a super easy recipe with barely any cooking. You just fry up some rosemary, add garlic & artichokes from a jar and then add pasta and finish with cheese. It’s simple but full of flavor from the rosemary & garlic, and the artichokes add juiciness. How easy is this recipe? Thanks Goop! 🙂
Recipe for Quinoa Rigatoni with artichokes & fried rosemary courtesy of:
1 lb quinoa rigatoni
2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary
2-3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 small (about 14-ounces) jar of artichokes
freshly ground pepper
parmesan to taste
1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and salt generously. Drop in pasta.
2. Meanwhile, coat the bottom of a large frying pan with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and place over medium-high heat. Add rosemary and fry for a minute in the hot oil to release the flavor. Turn the heat down to medium and add the garlic. Cook until soft and fragrant, about a minute, and then add the artichokes, breaking them up with your fingers while you drop them in. Add about half of the liquid from the jar, season with salt and pepper and stir, cooking for about another minute.
3. When the pasta is al dente, drain, reserving ½ cup of pasta water. Add the water to the pan with the pasta, stir and grate a lot of parmesan over the top.
