A rainy day must have..
When it’s cold and rainy outside, there is nothing like a good, old, hearty pasta to chase away those winter blues. Or for those slightly more deranged personal, who celebrate the coming of this awful season, who doesn’t enjoy a delicious plate of pasta no matter the occasion?!! And it really doesn’t get much better than this ultra creamy artichoke pasta..
This pasta sauce is absolutely delish just as is. But for those who enjoy the added meaty flavour, you can also add chicken breasts or some crispy, fried bacon goes really well with this sauce as well.
Creamy Artichoke Pasta
500g of your favourite pasta, cooked according to packet instructions.
1 Tbsp of olive oil
4 chicken breasts or 1 pack diced bacon (optional)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1/2 tin of coconut cream (or to taste)
1 tin artichoke hearts
In a large pan on very high heat fry the chicken(until slightly browning but not cooked through and season with salt and pepper) or bacon until crispy. (If not using meat begin with this step) Add tomatoes and coconut cream and simmer.
Drain the artichoke hearts, slice them and add them to the sauce. Simmer until all flavours have combined and the sauce has thickened slightly.
Drain pasta and return it into the pot. Add the sauce to the pot and stir until well combined.
Serve with a handful of your favourite cheese.
