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!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  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
