Tonight I had pasta on my mind, with no specific recipe I went into the kitchen with Mr. Martini and winged it. I used my fridge and pantry to come up with this dish and it's always when the meal tastes the best!! I started out with a jar of store bought marinated artichoke hearts, prosciutto and brie from the fridge and a pound of pasta. Fresh basil and garlic bruschetta added freshness.This is a no cook pasta sauce, dump bowl pasta if you will!! First I chopped up the jar of marinated artichoke hearts, next I sliced up the prosciutto, about 5-6 slices, and diced up 6oz of brie. Now I set the pot of pasta water to boil with plenty of salt added to the water. Sauce waits for the pasta always!! I tossed the sauce ingredients with extra olive oil. When the pasta was al dente I mixed it all together with the addition of fresh basil, salt and pepper to taste.
Then I decided to make a garlic bruschetta by simply grilling a ciabatta loaf rubbing it with a fresh garlic clove , drizzling it with olive oil and topping it with grated parmesan.
*you can make this meal in less than an hour
