Spaghetti or another pasta that you fancy
Frozen artichokes or artichokes from a tin or jar
3 cloves of garlic
Freshly grated Padano cheese
Small piece of butter
Salt and black pepper
Cut the artichokes in pieces
Bring water with salt to boil in a large pan
Put a good splash of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the artichoke, which you sprinkle with a little bit of salt when in the pan.
When the water is boiling you add the pasta and immediately loosen it with a fork to prevent it from sticking. No need to put olive oil in the pan.
When the artichoke is getting slightly browned you add the finely chopped garlic
Make sure the garlic does not burn
When the pasta is ‘al dente’ you add it to artichokes in the frying pan
Add black pepper, a few tiny pieces of butter and some freshly grated Padano cheese.
