1 (14 ounce) can
artichoke hearts in water
fresh sliced mushrooms
chopped fresh basil
This was a great basic sauce but I did make a few changes that people might like: put a tbsp. of olive oil in a pan and saute 1-2 cloves of garlic until brown, add onions and saute until translucent. Then add mushrooms ( I added 2 cups), a small can of olives, chopped artichokes, and basil. I then added the flour and milk until sauce thickened. Then I added 2 cups of tomatoes (b/c I love them) and 1 tbsp. of italian herbs and 1 tbsp. of parmasean cheese. I served with angel hair and foccacia bread. It was delicious.
This recipe was good. I cooked the onions with the artichokes in some butter, and then made the cream sauce. I also added some fat-free cream cheese to make a richer sauce, and a bit of garlic. I used a lot of pepper (personal taste) and served it over angel hair. This recipe scales down easily when cooking for one!
I like to add a little more sauciness than what this recipe calls for, by using grated parmesan in conjunction with the flour, and adding extra milk. This makes for a thicker, richer sauce that coats all the noodles.
I pureed all the vegetables in my processor because I like a smoother sauce. After pureeing, I simmered the sauce on the stove and added a little fat free evaporated milk. I didn't need any flour at all. It turned out great!
Have to give it 5 stars when it tastes this good and is this easy.
I used marinated artichokes (which I think are packed in water with some oil and spices), and it tasted great.
I went for the route of cooking up some garlic/onion in olive oil before making the sauce. Also added dried basil (no fresh) and a bit of oregano.
I absolutely love this recipe! Instead of the 2 tomatoes, which I don't always have on hand, I use a can of diced tomatoes. Yummy!
This is a great recipe. I have fixed it twice. My family loves it. The first time I fixed it according to recipe, and the second time I included some cubed chicken breast. It is great both ways. Thanks Holly...
I thought this was quite tasty. I used different vegetables only because I used what I had on hand (onions, roasted red peppers, zucchini and tomatoes), but followed the recipe for the most part. I really liked it and thought it was a good change from standard pasta and not as fattening as some alfredo sauces are.
