Fettuccine with artichokes and beans
3/4 pound fettuccine
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can cannellini beans, rinced
1 can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
salt and pepper
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1. Cook pasta as directed. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Add beans, artichokes, salt and pepper. Cook until headed through. (3-4 minutes)
3. Toss pasta with artichoke mixture and reserved pasta water. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Sometimes we use more artichokes. In our house, there can never be too many of them. Sometimes I add a little Parmesan on top or sprinkle the artichokes with Italian seasoning while they cook. Mix it up. This is really good. Try it even if you think you won't like it. I did and I think you will too.
