I heart artichoke hearts
If you need an easy, quick dinner, give this one a try. Don't expect to have your socks knocked off. But, don't expect utter disappointment either. This is one of those recipes that is what it is...a good, everyday dinner that your family will probably like but may not remember a few weeks or months from now.
*As a side note, I spent about twenty minutes in the pasta aisle of Stop & Shop with an increasingly-antsy one-year-old attempting to find wagon-wheel pasta. It's a good thing that my little one found the chunk of Parmesan cheese (that we were also buying for this recipe) rather amusing, as it could have gotten rather ugly otherwise. I perused every brand about five times with no luck save for a miniature version made by Barilla. I decided against these mini wheels, because I thought they seemed rather puny for an adult dinner. But, it made me wonder, do full-size wagon wheel pasta still exist? They seem far too fun to have become extinct from the pasta world.
