My Favorite 'Go To' Dinner!

January 27, 2010

I can't believe that I've been cooking so much (I think Mr. D is happy that my inner housewife is finally surfacing!). :o)

I wanted to share with all my favorite 'go to' dinner. Mr. D called me last night to let me know he was on the way home (which is always much appreciated!). At that instance the little light bulb in my brain went off, as I had bought a package of grape tomatoes at the store last week, and I would have hated to have them go unused! Within minutes I whipped up the following:

Pasta with Sauteed Tomatoes, Olives, and Artichokes

3 teaspoons Garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon Olive Oil
1 package cherry/grape Tomatoes (halved)
3/4 can medium pitted Black Olives (chopped)
1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts (drained and quartered)
Angel Hair Pasta
Parmesan Cheese, Salt, and Black Pepper to taste

  1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, tomatoes, olives, and artichokes; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  2. Place pasta in a large bowl. Add tomato mixture, cheese, salt, and ground pepper to taste; toss well.
The recipe above is based on this one, however modified to my liking! :)

P.S.- Stuart wanted to say hi to all...too bad he forgot to smile for the photo! :(


  1. Sounds yummy, I think my daughter would love it. She is a fan of all the ingredients!

  2. This inspired my dinner tonight... And it was DELICIOUS! I love how simple and good it is. It may become my "go to" too! :) Thanks for sharing.


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
