Not all pasta recipes are based on the combination of tomatoes, oil, and hard Italian cheeses. This light, creamy recipe is a new, delicious option. You can substitute sauteed sliced fennel, edamame or fava beans for the artichoke hearts.

I like serving this with a cherry tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad. Add olive oi and balsamic vinegar.
