In the last few weeks, Handwritten Recipes has gotten some good press and great traffic, and I've been lucky enough to meet a bunch of adventurous cooks willing to give some of those recipes a go.
Today's recipe tryout comes courtesy of Hillary and Amy of A Tale of 2 Kitchens. They selected a recipe I posted a while back for pasta with artichokes, found in a copy of "Dune: Messiah." Here's what they came up with:
The recipe came out quite well! The capers add a salty kick while the sour cream and half and half really round out the sauce - giving it a silky texture. We used fresh herbs (basil, oregano, and Italian flat leaf parsley) because it's summer and they're abundant! They also give great, fresh flavor. I would definately make this recipe again, who doesn't love a good, simple pasta recipe? I'd probably add even more artichokes then it calls for the second time around... and cheese!
Great, now I'm starving.
Thanks again to Hillary and Amy of A Tale of 2 Kitchens.
