There's more to fresh spinach fettuccine than its beautiful green color. It cooks up especially tender, with a hint of the bright flavor of spinach. As an alternative, use dried fettuccine, if you like.
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion thinly sliced
- 3 medium artichokes trimmed and hearts sliced, or 1 (4-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and halved
- 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt divided
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper divided
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 pound fresh spinach fettuccine cooked until tender, drained (1/4 cup pasta water reserved)
- 6 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes sliced
- 2 teaspoons chopped thyme
- 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 7 minutes. Add artichoke, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and cook until artichokes are tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Add wine and simmer until it has reduced slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in reserved 1/4 cup pasta water, tomatoes and thyme then add pasta, salt and pepper and toss well. Transfer pasta to bowls, garnish with cheese and serve.
