I had never tasted artichokes before coming to US. But it was love at first bite. I am yet to try the fresh one. I use either frozen or canned ones. I like to add it as a topping for pizza or put it in some pasta dish. This one is so far our favorite pasta dish.
1/2 packet angel hair pasta
1/2 tbl spn butter/olive oil
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes cut into half
1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
