Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    12 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup water
    1 can artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed and quartered
    1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives, quartered
    1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/2 tsp dried basil

Tips

You could substitute white wine in for the water. I always add a whole onion since my family loves onion. 1/3 cup of kalamata is about 8 to 10 olives. And I use garlic powder in place of real garlic cloves so my kids don't pick them out.


Directions

In large pot of boiling water cook pasta until al dente. Drain. Meanwhile in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, season with pepper; cook stirring occasionally until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add water and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes.
Stir in artichokes and cook until starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add olives and half of the tomatoes; cook until tomatoes start to break down, 1 to 2 minutes. Add pasta to skillet. Stir in remaining tomatoes, oil, cheese, and basil. Serve with additional cheese and cracked pepper.

Serving Size: 1 cup pasta
