Easy Pasta Salad

Angel Hair Pasta with Artichoke Hearts and cilantro

Sure it’s all cold and crappy now, but as soon as the weather warms up a bit you might want to give it a try. Simple and good and very similiar to one of my all time pasta dishes, Angel Hair Pomadoro (angel hair pasta, olive oil, fresh basil and fresh diced tomatoes).

Warmed Angel Hair Pasta with Artichoke Hearts

This is a great use for all of that Angel Hair Pasta left over from last night.

  • Angel Hair Pasta, 1/2 lb, cooked
  • 1/2 lb fresh or frozen (and thawed) artichoke hearts
  • 2 TBLS chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup your favorite vinegrette
  • Parmesean cheese to taste
  • Olive Oil

We are looking for warm, not hot. Not room temperature either. Closer to body temp.

Warm the pasta and artichoke hearts in a saute pan with a little olive oil. Add vinegrette, toss to coat and heat through. Plate as you like, top with parm and cilantro.

Add to this what you like. Fresh cracked pepper, pesto or fresh diced Roma Tomatoes would be very nice additions. Makes a great side dish to chicken or fish. Add some shrimp and make it a dinner.

A nice crisp white or light ale would be fabulous with this too.
