Linguine with Artichoke-Tomato Sauce

When you need a toss-together pasta dish, this is just the ticket. Tart marinated artichokes enhance the tomatoes. The sauce is so flavorful, no one will miss the meat. —Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York

    A most tasty dish! I made pretty much the same as is. I did forget to add the tomato paste and I did not have fresh basil so added dried. I used a few sun dried tomatoes and only had cracked black pepper and garlic canned tomatoes. As an afterthought at the end, I threw in a can of tuna. This is one delicious quick meal. Try it you will not be disappointed!
