Artichoke Lemon Pasta
I do not eat a lot of pasta. I am more of a potatoes kind of girl. However, we all have cravings on occasion. This being one of those infrequent occasions, I was craving pasta. But the typical pasta in tomato sauce just was not quite what I had in mind. This lightened up artichoke asparagus lemon pasta recipe is full of bold flavors. The artichoke is tasty and pairs perfectly with the asparagus and who does not love asparagus? Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. They have a nice earthy flavor that I just can’t get enough of. But alas, they are quite costly, so I don’t eat them as often as I would like. The lemon lends a nice pop of acidity to the dish and pairs like a best friend with the goat cheese. This recipe brings to mind the flavors of the mediterranean.
