Cook Eat Delicious!


Artichokes are one of my favorite vegetables. Steam and Eat! Each Artichoke leaf is delicious but don’t forget about the heart! Artichoke Hearts can be used in a variety of recipes. I love to serve stuffed artichokes as an appetizer or slice up some marinated artichoke hearts in some pasta. I am surprised that many adults have never tried artichokes before. If you have never eaten this delicious vegetable, today is the day! Don’t shrink back from trying something new especially if it tastes great and is easy to cook. Check out the following recipes for what you are looking for.

Creamy White Chicken & Artichoke Lasagna

Creamy. Cheesy. Pasta. Chicken. Basil. Artichoke Hearts. Sun Dried Tomatoes.
What more could you want in a meal? This Lasagna is delicious, I mean, hands-down-ready-to-eat-the-whole-pan-by-myself-delicious. Plus it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients or steps which makes it an easy recipe for any day of the week.

I have always shied away from making lasagna. I remember my first attempt was a runny mess when cut into. My next few weren’t that great either. But with enough time and practice I look forward to a Lasagna night at home.

Delicious Rating: Did I mention this lasagna is delicious? Since my DH and I already love artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes, we are in love with this recipe. The cream cheese sauce is super creamy and doesn’t give you the ‘runny’ lasagna that sometimes happens. This is a perfect recipe with salad and some Soft & Crusty Bread. Plus, if you are stuck in a rut with traditional lasagna this is a great way to change things up. Leave a comment and let me know how it turns out for you.


Vegan Penne Olive & Artichoke Hearts

 A fresh tomato sauce always gives pasta something extra. You can dress up or down the flavors and cooking homemade pasta sauce is so easy! I use to be addicted to Prego, that was all I needed with some pasta…I guess I have grown in what I like in pasta and what I think is delicious!

This vegan recipe features olives and artichoke hearts, a very yummy combination. I always make this at home as my pasta go-to-dish. It is reliable in taste & time. While the sauce is simmering, you can boil up the pasta. Feel free to add extra veggies too. Because this is one of my regular pasta dinners, I am entering it in “House Favorites: Vegan” hosted by Chez Cayenne.

Delicious Rating: Super easy recipe to cook and the taste is delicious. If you like more wine, please add more. I love the artichoke hearts with this sauce. They fall apart while simmering and you have a piece in every bite. I also add corn to this recipe and you may omit if you’d like. I add corn to almost every red sauce pasta I make, something about the little yellow kernel, I just love corn! This is a delicious house favorite and if you give it a try please let me know how it turned out!


Artichokes & Special Sauce

You can’t go wrong with Artichokes. They are full of fiber, low in calories, and high in flavor. I love to eat them as a meal in itself. Sometimes I go plain, salt & pepper, with mayo, or whip up some ‘special sauce’. Yes…Special Sauce sometimes sounds leery, not knowing what is in a special sauce can really put you off. Don’t worry, I tell all in this sauce! Artichokes are the easiest thing to make as well as the dipping sauce to accompany it.

Delicious Rating: Easy recipe to cook and delicious to eat. This is a great Vegetarian Recipe as well! Great for an appetizer or a side. Let me know how you like to eat your Artichokes!
