This Creamy vegetarian dish has spaghetti with artichoke hearts and tomatoes that is a super easy recipe to make!

Welcome to another delicious dish . This creamy spaghetti with artichoke hearts and tomatoes recipe undeniably ranks in the top 5 for favorite dinners of mine, as well as Mr. Wishes. It’s also doesn’t hurt that it’s so super easy to make! This is a meal you can serve to company and they will be astounded….I promise. The sauce is tomato-cream based sauce which is one of my personal faves as far as pasta sauces go.

 The only thing this recipe is missing is…. meat.  Since I learned over the past 2 years that Mr. Wishes can’t possibly live if a dinner is lacking meat,  I always add a cooked chicken breast when making this. If you are serving more than 2 people you may want to cook up more than 1 chicken breast.

It’s no secret to those who know me that The Pioneer Woman is one of my cooking heroes.  I considered purchasing cable TV just so I can watch her new show on Saturday mornings on the Food Network.  Her recipes have yet to disappoint and I think she’s just simply amazing!  Part of me is also jealous of her farm life and living in the country.  I want to trade lives with her  just for one week, get it out of my system, and then come back home to the “big city” life I live :o)
