Creamy Chicken Artichoke Pasta

I need more artichoke recipes on the blog! Artichokes are so good and underrated in my humble opinion. This creamy artichoke chicken pasta is exactly the way I love to use that funky awesome vegetable!

I wonder what it is about pasta that just makes us feel so comforted to eat it. I don’t have any Italian in me, but I wish I did. That culture seems just awesome to me. They eat well and love their family and friends. What more could you want?

Maybe I’ll just go ahead and pretend that I’m Italian. It would certainly look obvious that I’m not, but that’s ok with me! Are any of you Italian and does your family have any awesome creamy pasta recipes?

And can we just take a moment to talk about sun dried tomatoes? They are so good, so tangy, and one of my favorite things to add to a creamy pasta. Have you tried our creamy sun dried tomato pasta? It only takes 20 minutes to make and is heavenly!

Ok, back to the artichokes! You’ll have dinner on the table in 30 minutes and a creamy pasta recipe is the perfect way to gather everyone around the table!

Is Artichoke Vegetable?

Artichokes are actually flowers, but they are also classified as vegetables.

Is Artichoke Healthy?

Artichokes are low in fat and rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 

Artichokes are high in folate and vitamins C and K, and have high amounts of important minerals.

Like I said, I need more artichoke recipes!!

Can I Use Fresh Herbs?

You can definitely use fresh herbs for this recipe! The general rule is that for every 1 teaspoon of dried herbs, you need1 tablespoon of fresh herbs. Dried herbs are much more potent with a concentrated flavor, so you need less of them. For this recipe, you would want 1 tablespoon of both basil and oregano.

What to Eat with Artichoke Recipes

More carbs!! My dream come true! I love a good bread with a creamy pasta, so our no knead artisan bread is perfect. A big green salad is also a great side to lighten up the meal or a tangy cucumber salad.

Variations on Artichoke Chicken Pasta

This recipe is super versatile so you can feel free to add or swap whatever add ins you want. Here are some suggestions:

  • Mushrooms
  • Asparagus
  • Bacon
  • Peas
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach

I would always keep that artichoke in there because it is so dang good. I just love the flavor and texture that it adds!

 

If a creamy comfort pasta is what you are after, add this creamy chicken artichoke pasta to your menu. It guarantee it will become one of your favorite artichoke recipes!
