Want more Green Goddess? Here you go! To all our pasta lovers, vegans and veggies out there... this one is for you!
What you need
1 recipe Simply Steamed Artichokes or 1 box frozen quartered artichoke hearts
12 ounces quinoa pasta (or your favorite pasta shape)
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
4 tablespoons Tessemae's Green Goddess Dressing
1 shallot, minced
4 ounces fresh goat cheese, optional
What to do
If you are using the fresh steamed artichokes: peel off the petals, scoop out the purple leaves and choke. You will be left with the artichoke hearts, just cut them into quarters. If using the frozen artichokes, thaw according to the package.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package. At the last minute, scoop out about ½ cup of the pasta water. Then, stir in the peas, just to warm them through, about 1 minute. Drain everything into a colander.
Return the pot to low heat and add 2 tablespoons Green Goddess and the shallot. Cook, stirring, until the shallots are fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the artichokes to warm. Add the drained pasta and peas, 2 tablespoons Green Goddess, and the reserved pasta water. Serve, topped with more Green Goddess and the crumbled goat cheese.
Tip: There are so many kinds of pasta out there these days! We love this tender noodle made from quinoa. Try a few and see what does it for you!
