Serves 4 (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)

One skillet from start to finish--can't beat it on a busy weeknight. The ricotta adds rich creaminess when mixed into each portion on the plate, while fresh mozza creates that ooey-gooey baked pasta feel.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup prechopped onion
  • 8 ounces presliced mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen artichoke quarters, thawed
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can unsalted fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 (9-ounce) package refrigerated fresh fettuccine
  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into small pieces
