Pasta with Peas & Artichokes in a Spicy Tomato Sauce

Don't let the long name fool you.  This pasta can be whipped up in under 30 minutes; but will taste like you spent hours making it.  I love these quick dishes specially for midweek dinners.

This is my submission to Presto Pasta Nights.   Don't forget to email me (theresa@foodhuntersguide.com) your pasta dish by Thursday 4/28 to be included in this week's Presto Pasta Nights. 

Pasta with Peas & Artichokes in a Spicy Tomato Sauce

1/2 bag frozen peas
1 small can artichoke hearts chopped
1 small can whole tomatoes crushed by hand
1 garlic clove
1/2 lb pasta
crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp Greek oregano
olive oil

Heat oil over medium heat and saute garlic. Add tomatoes, oregano and crushed red pepper.  Simmer until thickened.  Add artichoke hearts and peas to tomatoes and allow to cook.

Boil pasta until al dente.  Top with sauce and some grated cheese.


  1. Oooh this looks so delicious! I must make this!

  2. I keep seeing artichoke recipes around and remembering how I love them so but haven't cooked with them in FOREVER. Love this pasta dish!
