That's What She Said.....

Pertaining to Tomatoes that is...
I have a friend from the Isle of Man (check it out) and she asked what I was fixin (she didn't use that word but made fun of us Southern Girls)
I told her I was FIXIN my favorite all time pasta dish! No idea what the name of it is...but it's got sun dried tomatoes and artichokes in it. My dear Manx friend said they are called "sun kissed tomatoes"!
Ohhh I like that a lot, so I'm logging that in my memory bank. I can't remember where I saw this recipe...or what the actual amounts are of each, but man oh man it's dee-licous!!! I thought I would share this recipe with you! Laura Style! Adjust ingredient amounts depending on the number you are serving! The photos you see will feed 4.



Ingredients:
Sun Kissed Tomatoes (I like the kind packed in oil)
Artichokes
black olives
oregano
garlic
red pepper flakes
olive oil
angel hair pasta


Directions:
Chop sun kissed tomatoes and black olives, quarter artichokes, and add to bowl. Sprinkle generously with oregano. Set aside



In a skillet over med heat saute garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil. We like a lot of garlic and heat so we add a generous amount of both.

(last night the inlaws came so I chilled w/the pepper flakes)

Add your chopped mixture to the pan and heat through. About 7 more mins.



I like to add extra olive oil to the pan while the mixture is heating. Add your angel hair pasta and toss to coat! (yep more olive oil)
Serve with fresh grated Parmesan and some crusty bread and you've got yourself a kick booty meal! It's even better the second day! (that's my "take 2" lunch for today)
Enjoy...Let me know if you give this a try!

Oh that looks SO good. Unfortunately for me, that would fall under my husbands dreaded category of "chic food" - darn those husbands and their categories. ;)

That looks wonderful! Too bad it doesn't have meat though, my hubby wouldn't be too impressed if I whipped something like that up for him. :)
