LEMON ARTICHOKE ANGEL HAIR PASTA


The holidays are soon upon us. With all of the festivities, come tempting foods that can be laden with calories. For some, planning a celebration can be challenging when we are watching what we eat. The older we become, I think the more aware we are of trying to stay active and maintain good eating habits. Now, this need not be boring. I came across a few great little charts that can be a good reference of foods that we should all be eating in various forms. So, I thought about researching some healthy recipes that will be easy to prepare, yet offering all the delicious flavor we long for! 




LEMON ARTICHOKE ANGEL HAIR PASTA

 1 cup canned artichoke heart, quartered
2 large garlic, cloves minced
1/2 cup packed fresh basil
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground

Angel Hair Pasta

 
Place all the ingredients in food processor, other than the pasta and process until pureed.
Toss with angel hair pasta until heated through.
