Broccoli Artichoke Heart Pasta

Pasta is one of those foods that will never get old for me. Growing up, we usually had the stereotypical spaghetti with a tomato and meat sauce. I loved it. Now, in addition to not eating meat anymore, my taste buds have expanded when it comes to pasta. (And most things, for that matter.) Like this delicious broccoli artichoke heart pasta. So hearty, delicious, and simple!

I would say that most people I know don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to cooking each night. It’s so nice to have a few recipes like this. So easy, nutritious, and delicious. Bonus that only a couple of the ingredients aren’t staples! So it also makes for a short shopping list, which is also a bonus.

It’s hard to say where I got the idea to make this pasta…I think it was probably one of those recipes where I just looked to see what I had in the kitchen and threw it together. And it was a winner! It’s amazing how much more creative I can be in the kitchen the more I practice with creating recipes. A fun challenge if ever there was one. At least for me.

For extra protein and nutrition, feel free to add a can of cannellini beans, pine nuts, or some sautéed veggies like mushrooms or sun dried tomatoes. For a fully plant-based/vegan option, simply omit the parmesan cheese or use a vegan version. Easy!
