Orecchiette With Mushrooms & Artichokes

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This can be made with any small pasta, such as penne, rotini or bow ties. Orrechiette means little ears, if I'm not mistaken. I found this on pccnaturalmarkets.com - hope you like it! It is easy and quick and is also vegetarian. Just omit the cheese if you choose.

Absolutely delicious! I recommend against using jarred artichokes, because they add a vinegary flavor. I added red pepper flakes.
