Today I am sharing a pasta recipe – Pasta with Sicilian Stuffed Artichokes – in a guest post at Chef Dennis’ blog, A Culinary Journey. I think pretty much all food bloggers know Chef Dennis. He is a very talented chef, but above all he is a very kind person and someone who is always ready to help others. I first “met” him through Foodbuzz and I am so happy we remained in touch even after the Foodbuzz era came to an end. He is actually the reason why I joined Google+ and his posts about this new social media channel have been really helpful for me. If you have a Google+ account, don’t forget to add him to your circles (you can find him here).
When Chef Dennis asked me to write a guest post for him, I was thrilled as I really admire his work! Deciding what to make was a bit harder though: I wanted something that represented me and my blog! After trying out a couple of recipes, I chose this pasta.
It is a recipe that my nonna from Palermo used to make for me when I would visit her and I am quite attached to it. Besides, artichokes are my favourite winter vegetable. I love their bitter-sweet taste!
This is a very hearty, yet sophisticated dish that will please even the fussiest eater. How could anyone resist a pasta dish served with artichoke hearts stuffed with a delicious sweet and savoury filling, and then topped with Pecorino Romano cheese?? I know I couldn’t… so if you are anything like me, please head over to Chef Dennis’ site to say hi and read the details of my recipe! Enjoy!
