Two Quick and Easy Pasta Sauces

I debated about whether or not to include these Two Quick and Easy Pasta Sauces in the Moosewood project. I finally decided that yes, they should be included, because I am making all recipes included in each of the cookbook's table of contents. So here there are!

As you may have inferred from the name, these are extremely simple dishes. I chose to use angel hair pasta, which cooks in record speed: about 4 minutes!  Overall, this dinner took less than ten minutes to make.

For Charlie's pasta, which is on the right in the above photo, he put pasta in a bowl and sprinkled it with minced garlic, olive oil, Parmesan, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Very easy and very garlicky, which is right up his alley!

For the artichoke pasta, I sliced up artichoke hearts and added Parmesan, salt, and black pepper. The recipe called for marinated artichoke hearts, which I unfortunately didn't have, but made do with the canned kind! It was so delicious!


  1. I have been thinking about the artichoke pasta recipe you made and posted on your blog some time ago ... I'm gonna find it and make that next! :)
