Penne artichoke pasta

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Penne pasta (I prefer La Bella's Tomato Basil Penne) cooked al dente
1 Stalk celery, chopped
1 Bell pepper (or mixed peppers) diced
1 can Diced tomatoes (fresh works too, 1-2 lg tomatoes)
1 small Onion, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, minced or crushed
1 can Artichoke hearts, diced

Saute celery, onion, garlic, and peppers in water or some of the artichoke liquid. (I use a little olive oil for flavor, a drizzle to 1 tsp). Cook until soft. Drain artichokes and braise for 1-2 minutes, add tomatoes, with liquid. If you prefer a more sauce-like mixture, save the liquid from the artichokes. Toss with pasta. Can be served warm off the stove, or is even better and more flavorful when chilled. Can also be tossed with FF Parmesan cheese, (or fresh grated, if you can stand the fat.)
