Trader Joe’s has the most gorgeous pasta In for the holidays – of course I bought some! So I made tonight’s dish with this lovely pasta – ugh. If I were to use it again I would: cook the non colored pasta for 2 minutes, add a little olive oil and then add the colored and cook for 6 more minutes. Live and learn! Regardless this is an amazing dish and should be shared even if the pics aren’t the prettiest. This is the perfect weeknight meal, the sauce comes together while the water comes to boil.

Ingredients:
8 oz pasta
4 oz Proscuitto
1 c parley
1 14 oz can artichoke hearts, chopped
1 shallot minced
2 TBSP olive oil

Cook pasta according to package.

Chop Proscuitto and parsley in a food processor.

In a 12 inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat, add shallots and artichokes, cook for 5 minutes. Add pasta and Proscuitto mixture plus 1/4 c pasta water, combine.

Serves 4.
