Quick Springtime Pasta

Perfect for an impromptu al fresco meal out on the deck, or after a long day at work – it’s made with common pantry items too (okay, maybe you won’t find the artichoke hearts in every pantry)

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 400 g can tomatoes
  • handful basil leaves, chopped
  • 400 g spaghetti
  • 290 g jar artichoke hearts, cut into bite size pieces
  • handful freshly grated parmesan

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Tip in the garlic and cook for 1 minute until lightly coloured.

  3. Meanwhile, boil the spaghetti according to pack instructions.
  4. Drain the spaghetti, reserving a little of the cooking water separately, then return to the pan.
  5. Add the artichokes to the tomato sauce until heated through, then pour it over the spaghetti.
  6. Stir in a little parmesan, most of the chopped parsley and a splash of the cooking water if the sauce looks dry.
  7. Serve immediately with the remaining parmesan and parsley sprinkled over.
