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
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.
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.
