Lisa @take_me_to_the_kitchen

The recipe this week is a simple and easy lemon artichoke pasta. It only has a few ingredients and it comes together as quickly as it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta!


1 lb of pasta

2 cans quartered artichoke hearts

1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup olive oil, (3/4 cup in total)

zest of 1 lemon

1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, likely 3-4 lemons depending on size

3 large cloves garlic, smashed

1 bay leaf

1 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper


  • Combine all the above ingredients, except 1/4 cup of the total olive oil.

  • Bring to boil, reduce to simmer, cover, and cook,15-20 minutes.

  • Put your pasta in the water to boil. Before you drain it, keep a bit of the water.

  • After the sauce cooks, remove the garlic and bay leaf.

  • Add remaining 1/4 cup olive oil and use a potato masher to combine ingredients into the sauce.

  • Add to drained pasta, use a bit of the pasta water to adjust sauce consistency.

  • Sprinkle with lemon zest and parmesan cheese.

Super easy and super delicious!
