Recipe by Chairman James
"Lacking a food processor I had to find another way to do this idea which called for an artichoke pesto. My version came out as good or better. This is a great meatless dish hot or cold."

extra-virgin olive oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Yum, James. :) Good recipe with minimal changes. Instead of draining the marinated artichoke hearts liquid, I used it all up in addition to the evoo. I had a bunch of grape tomatoes, so I cut them all in half, rubbed with a wee bit of evoo, sprinkled a bit of salt on them and roasted them for a few minutes. It really brought a nice sweetness with their natural sugars. I also chopped some Kalamata olives which bring that great savory/salty bite. This was really good James!
The only thing I did different was to use fusilli rather than farfalle because that is what I had on hand and needed to use up (sorry!). This was very tasty. I think that the next time I will grind some of the walnuts fine and then leave some chopped. I highly recommend using freshly grated pecorino romano cheese. This was pretty much cool by the time I served it, and all I know is that hubby wanted more----a sure sign of a keeper in this household. Thanks so much for this recipe!
I used chopped pistachio nuts instead (having no walnuts). I cut down a little on the olive oil and lemon juice since I used the marinade from the artichoke hearts. Chopped fresh tomato or tuna or a little cooked chicken can be added as well. Thank you for this teriffic recipe James!
Pretty much just followed the recipe as is, though I did add some grilled chicken (which I marinated in the juice from the artichokes). And I used pecorino romano cheese instead of parmesan because that's what I had on hand! Really good and even my very picky-eater kid like it!
