Lemon Braised Artichokes Over Pasta

This Lemon Braised Artichokes Over Pasta was just starting to be tossed, as you can tell in the picture, when I snapped the picture which is why not everything is mixed in. This dish is hands down one of our new favorites. We went meatless on this occasion, but I think it would be really yummy to grill up some chicken, slice it thin and toss it with the pasta. Wouldn’t that be yummy? This dish was a recipe my husband wanted to try so one night we headed into the kitchen and whipped it up. It’s sooooo good. It’s light, but full of flavor.

This recipe was adapted by us, but feel free to head over to Food Network for the original recipe.

How Long Will Artichoke Dip Keep?

Artichoke dip will last for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

It should be kept in a covered container.

Can Artichoke Hearts Be Frozen?

Artichoke hearts can be frozen, and will keep indefinitely.

Artichoke hearts that have been frozen and thawed will be a little softer, and are more suited to sauces, soups and casseroles.

Are Artichokes Good For You?

The artichoke  is a good source of folate, dietary fiber, and vitamins C and K.

Artichokes are also packed with antioxidants.
