Monday Menu ~ Artichoke/Tomato Spaghetti

This is another recipe I tried from The Pioneer Woman, and it is spectacular!  The entire family loved it.  It makes a huge amount, which makes for great left-overs.  Hope you enjoy it!

Artichoke/Tomato Spaghetti

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
1 14.5 ounce can quartered artichoke hearts drained
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes with juice
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
salt & pepper to taste

1 pound thin spaghetti
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped chives

Cook spaghetti till al dente. Drain and set aside.

Melt olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add artichoke hearts and tomatoes. Stir and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cream and chicken broth. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Cook over low heat until heated through, then turn off heat.

Place drained pasta in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1 cup Parmesan. Pour sauce over the top. Add chopped chives. Toss together to combine.

Serve this with a green salad and some hot, buttered French bread and your mouth will be thanking you.  Enjoy!
