Linguine with Artichokes and Lemon

Sunset FEBRUARY 2002

  • Yield: Makes 2 or 3 servings


  • 9 ounces fresh linguine
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh or dried rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package (8 oz.) frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and quartered
  • 3/4 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedges


1. In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, bring 3 quarts water to a boil. Add linguine and stir occasionally until barely tender to bite, 2 to 3 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat, stir onions and rosemary in oil until onions are limp, 1 to 2 minutes. Add artichoke hearts, broth, wine, cream, and lemon peel; stir until boiling, 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Drain pasta and return to pan. Add artichoke sauce, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Lift with two spoons to mix. (If pasta has cooled, stir over medium heat until hot.) Pour into a wide serving bowl or distribute among plates. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over pasta.

Variation: Substitute sliced red and yellow bell peppers for the artichoke hearts, or mushrooms for the artichokes and sherry for the white wine.
