Meat Free Monday: Artichoke and Sun-dried Tomato Pasta

by Deena on August 22, 2011

This weeks meat free dish was a hit with my in-laws and my family.  I wasn’t sure if the boys would eat the sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes – but they ate every bite.    I loved this so much that I’m thinking about putting the toppings on top of pizza crust next time.  Yum
