"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut
Angela's Italian and Sicilian Recipes
Penne with Artichokes
Penne with Artichokes
(Penne ai Carciofi)
4 globe artichokes
Juice of 1/2 lemon, strained
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
12 oz (350 grams) Penne pasta
Salt and pepper
Fill half a bowl with water and stir in the lemon juice so it becomes acidulated.

Working on one artichoke at a time, break off the stem, remove the coarse, outer leaves and choke, if necessary.

Cut into quarters, then slice thinly and drop into the acidulated water to prevent discoloration.

Heat the olive oil in a pan.
Add the garlic and parsley and cook over a low heat for about 2 minutes.

Drain the artichokes, add to the pan and mix well.

Cover and cook over a low heat for just a few minutes.
Add 2-3 tablespoons water, season with salt and recover the pan so that the artichokes cook in their own steam.

Meanwhile, cook the penne in a large pan of salted, boiling water until 'al dente', then drain and pour into a serving dish.

Pour the artichoke sauce over the pasta, season with pepper and serve. Serves 4.
