Ingredients

  • 2 pounds baby artichokes
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 pound linguine cooked and tossed with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

Garlic lemon Marinate

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Remove the zest you need from lemon before squeezing. Whisk together the marinate ingredients.
  2. Pull off the outer leaves of the baby artichokes until you reach tender light green leaves. Cut off the browned part of stem. Cut away about 1/2 inch of the artichoke top, and slice in half. Promptly, place each in marinate, making sure to coat completely.
  3. Preheat skillet to medium-high heat. (Boil the pasta at this time as well)
  4. Place each artichoke half cut side down in the hot skillet, and add the marinate. Cover and cook until the cut sides are lightly caramelized.
  5. Add the sun-dried tomatoes. Toss, recover and reduce heat to low-med. Cook until the artichokes are fork tender.
  6. Serve over linguini tossed in extra virgin olive oil, and top with grated Parmesan.

Recipe Notes
