Jezebel's Favorite Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pinay0618

This is my take on my all-time favorite restaurant meal, Evelyn's Favorite Pasta, from the Cheesecake Factory. It's a simple combination of simple ingredients, but so satisfying. Please, adjust to your heart's content! This dish is amazingly open to interpretation based on your own personal taste. :)

This was a delicious way to get our 5-a-day of veggies today! The preparation was quick and easy - chopping, boiling and roasting were all complete withing 45 minutes so it made a great weeknight meal. I used canned quartered artichoke hearts (drained) and was amazed by the flavor they acquired through roasting. I also agree with your comment about interpretation. Other veggies such as zucchini and mushrooms would lend themselves to this dish - whatever was ripe in the garden or on special in the produce section. Great stuff SweetJezebel - thanks!
