“I LOVE artichokes, and this is a wonderful vegan pasta sauce that makes great use of these delicious little thistles. I usually have canned artichoke hearts on hand instead of jars of the marinated ones. For this recipe, I simply added 1/4 cup or so of my favorite Italian salad dressing with a shake or two of crushed red pepper and some dried italian spices in place of the reserved marinade. Non-vegans, feel free to top your servings of pasta with grated cheese. I spinkled the top of ours with some nutritional yeast which is a nice vegan alternative to parmesan cheese.”
