Artichokes, Tomatoes and Spaghetti

The Pioneer Woman has the most delicious spaghetti recipe that is a favorite with my hubby. This spaghetti dish was on the menu for today.

Get a pot of thin spaghetti going. Add some olive oil to the water in addition to salt, then sprinkle with olive oil after draining.

Saute onions and garlic, add a drained can of artichokes and diced tomatoes with juice, and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Add a little chicken broth, nutmeg, heavy cream, salt and pepper to taste. I used half & half because it was on hand, but I've also used skim milk.

Drain the spaghetti, put in a container, pour the sauce over it, add some fresh chopped basil and chives, then top with freshly grated Parmesan. Hubby dove in. A bowl of Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup will be dessert.
Go to the The Pioneer Woman link above for the correct measured amounts.
Until next time, God bless.
