Pasta with Roasted Peppers, Artichokes and Sun-Dried Tomatoes


Hungry and in a hurry? Here’s a quick and satisfying meal that’s easy to put together from pantry staples — things you probably already have on hand. It’s a great dish for when you don’t have a meal planned or a lot of time to prepare one.  The prep time is only 15 minutes, so you can prepare the no-cook sauce while you’re boiling the pasta water, and you’ll be chowing down in no time at all!

  • 1 jar (12 oz.) marinated artichokes, drained well and chopped
  • 1 jar (12 oz.) roasted red peppers, drained well and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. sundried tomatoes in oil, drained and julienned
  • 3 Tbsp.  brine-cured black olives, pitted and sliced
  • ½ c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 oz. pasta—penne, fusilli, rotini or campanelle would work well

Combine all ingredients except pasta in a small, non-metal bowl. Stir well to blend. Cook the pasta according to the package directions and drain. Toss the hot pasta with the artichoke, red pepper and sundried tomato mixture and serve at once with grated romano cheese.

    1. Yes, I think it could be just as good without the sundried tomatoes since there are so many other savory flavors in the dish. My daughter doesn't care for them either and she makes me nuts as she picks them all out of her plate one by one.
