Simple Recipe with Artichoke Hearts & Pepperoncini

I love recipes that are 2 things – simple & delicious! But then again, who doesn’t?! Here’s a recipe that I make very frequently. Feel free to add or take away different vegetables, maybe add some chicken, or whatever fits your hunger and taste buds!


  • 2 servings of pasta (my favorite for this is capellini)
  • 10-12 marinated artichoke hearts
  • 4-6 pepperoncini (pictured below – this is one of my hands down favorite ingredients! Warning: they are a bit spicy)
  • 2 large cloves of garlic
  • a green veggie (I would highly suggest a crown of broccoli chopped into small pieces, but you could also throw in a couple handfuls of baby spinach)
  • olive oil
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • optional: a dash of cayenne powder or hot pepper flakes if you like it spicy


  1. Cook the pasta
  2. Meanwhile, combine garlic, enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan, and veggies
  3. Add salt & pepper as desired
  4. Saute at a medium heat until broccoli is tender
  5. If pasta is not ready yet, turn down to a low heat and cover while you wait
  6. Add pasta and a tablespoon or so more olive oil
  7. Spice it up with cayenne/hot pepper flakes
  8. Enjoy!

Serves 2

pepperoncini = delicious!

This post is dedicated to my college roommate who continues to eat a can of chickpeas as the central part of her dinner like the “old” days.  However, I do give her credit for roasting them now ;) Here’s an easy recipe for you that I know you’ll like!

  3. Awwwww YES!!! We’ve eaten this meal for soooo many years. I keep meaning to post the FULL recipe… such funny timing because I JUST ate leftovers from last night and it was pretty much this recipe – I did spaghetti with garlic, olive oil, the hot peppers, artichoke hearts, spinach, and cannellini beans. LOVE YOU BFF! XO
