This pasta dish has enough goodies in it to make an entire meal. Despite having soy sauce as an ingredient, it does not taste Asian. I like to use a pasta such as medium shells that will hold onto the vegetables, not a spaghetti-type. Preparation time does not include 30 minutes for soaking sun-dried tomatoes.
- 1⁄4 cup sun-dried tomato (NOT the oil-packed variety)
- 12 ounces pasta, of your choice
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 (16 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
- 1⁄4 cup kalamata olive, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup pine nuts
- 10 ounces frozen spinach
- 3 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- Soak the sun-dried tomatoes in hot water for 30 minutes.
- Drain, and slice into thin strips.
- At the same time, take the spinach from the freezer and allow to semi-defrost in a colander.
- Cook pasta according to package directions.
- Saute onion and garlic in oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add mushrooms, soy sauce, and pepper and saute for another 3 minutes until vegetables are tender.
- Add tomatoes, artichoke hearts, olives and pine nuts.
- Mix well.
- Add spinach, mixing well until everything is combined and heating through.
- Add vegetable mixture to drained pasta.
- Add feta, and mix well.
This was really good. I used a 7 cheese tortellini and added some capers. I loved all the stuff in it, thanks for posting!
I don't feel qualified to rate this since I pretty much used it as a jumping-off point for a quick-fix dinner, but it turned out delicious! I used leftovers from recipe ID# 21882 (pesto chicken, which I thought was just okay). Sauteed the garlic and onion, added the soy sauce, sundried tomato pesto, artichoke hearts, pinenuts, and the cubed-up leftover chicken (that had pesto, mozzerella, and sauteed mushrooms). Omitted the spinach, feta, and olives entirely. Mixed in penne pasta. DH and I LOVED the result! Will try the recipe as written next time to see how it turns out. I think the soy sauce added a great depth of flavor. Thanks for the inspiration!
Wow, what flavour in this. We loved it. I did forget to add the spinach and was out of pine nuts. It is easy to make as well. Not being a huge pasta lover, I would reduce the amount of pasta next time, but that is only personal preference. Thanks for the recipe.
