  • While the water is heating, melt the butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the onions, mushrooms, and garlic; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, wine, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer until liquid is reduced by a third, about 4 minutes.

  • Cook the fresh pasta in boiling water until done, about 2 minutes. Drain.

  • Toss pasta with sauce. Top with fresh tomatoes and cheese, add pepper to taste, and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can also used dried pasta, but allow enough time for it to cook. I recommend Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay for the white wine.

If you're adding prawns or cubed chicken pieces, sauté them with 2 tablespoons of butter in separate pan until cooked and then set aside. Add them at the end of Step 3.

Awsome. There are so many wonderful flavors in this dish. Just one note. Be sure to rinse the sundried tomatoes. I didn't and the recipe was a little more oily than I wanted. Read More

I didn't really think that the taste was that great and it ended up being more like a hot pasta salad. Probably will not make again. Read More

This was very good. I am not a fan of mushrooms or olives so I left those out. I used sun dried tomatoes from a bag rather than oil packed.. so much cheaper. All you have to do is pour boiling water over them.. let sit for 10 minutes and you have perfectly pliable tomatoes. This was a nice change from the standard red sauce. The second day I had this I added some grilled chicken breast.. even better. Read More

This was good with very strong flavors. Will make again and next time add some shrimp. I did find directions a little unclear. I didn't know whether or not to add the marinade from the artichokes and the oil from the tomatoes. I added about half of the marinade from artichokes and thought it was a little overpowering to the dish. Read More

I ran across this recipe 2 weeks ago and have already made it 3 times. I REALLY love this recipe. The only thing that I changed after I made it the first time was using shells instead of Fettuccinne. Both are great. I just prefer the shells. Everyone should try this! Read More

One of the best recipes I have found here! I did add the chicken and left out the olives. Also I used chicken broth instead of the butter. My husband raved about it! Read More

This is unbelievably delicious! With the exception of slicing up some fresh mushrooms this required no effort besides opening a few jars of artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. It was ready in no time and got rave reviews! My husband was very impressed although my children didn't care for it. Oh well I will definately make it again anyway! Thanks for the great recipe!!

Mmm. I highly recommend this especially as a college student with limited time to anyone else who likes to cook but has a busy schedule. I made a half batch and I thought the ratio of pasta to everything else was perfect. I had to make some changes due simply to limitations in what I had-no lemon juice and only regular sundried tomatoes (not the jar). I used the butter but also added some olive oil. Next time I might add a little more garlic. Read More
