The other day my daughter asked for pasta with artichokes. I'd forgotten about a dish I used to make many years ago - kind of a sweet and savory sauce. I thought about it a while and it gradually came back to me (I think). Sorry the measurements are vague. It is really quick and easy, and tastes pretty good, too!
Pasta with Artichokes
1 red onion, sliced
2 or 3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 can artichokes, sliced
handful of sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
half a handful currents or raisins
dried basil, Frank's Red Hot Sauce, s & p to taste
Saute onion in oil until soft. Add remaining ingredients and cook 10-15 minutes. Serve over ziti. In the old days we topped it with grated Romano, and the contrast was yummy. If anyone knows a good vegan version, let me know.
The tomatoes are topped with bread crumbs mixed with Italian spices and olive oil, and broiled until browned.
Thanks to River of Wing it Vegan for giving me a butterfly award! Check out her blog- it's fabulous (especially all those Halloween posts!)
