Number of Servings: 6


    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.


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.
