Pasta with Artichokes, Olives and Tomatoes (Recipe courtesy Body+Soul)

Ingredients:

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 12 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti (or gluten-free variety, if needed)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ medium onion, thinly sliced, lengthwise
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced crosswise
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained, rinsed, and quartered lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more serving
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, torn

Preparation:

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water. Return pasta to pot.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper, cook, stirring occasionally until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add wine and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes.

Stir in artichokes and cook until starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add olives and half of the tomatoes; cook until tomatoes start to break down, 1 to 2 minutes. Add pasta to skillet. Stir in remaining tomatoes, oil, cheese, and basil. Thin with reserved pasta water if necessary to coat the spaghetti. Serve with additional cheese. Serving yield = four servings.
