IngredientsBacon and Artichoke Pasta

  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 pound bacon, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped or thinly sliced
  • Black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 10 to 12 artichoke hearts, drained, from two 6-ounce pouches, one 10-ounce box of frozen and defrosted, or one 14-ounce can
  • Penne pasta
  • Salt
  • A handful of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

  7. Sprinkle with the parsley and half the cheese and cook, tossing to combine and adding some of the starchy pasta water if necessary to loosen the sauce, 1 to 2 minutes.
