Pappardelle with artichokes and cream

Pasta with artichokes and cream is very easy to prepare, as you see in VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel. First of all, you have to clean the artichokes perfectly by removing the hardest part of the stem, the outermost leaves and the inner beard: in this VIDEO TUTORIAL to make it perfectly. I'll show you exactly how to clean artichokes.

Once the artichokes have been cleaned and placed in water acidulated with lemon juice, Cut them into thin slices . Sauté two cloves of garlic in extra virgin olive oil in a pan. When the garlic is slightly golden, Remove it and add the artichokes. Mix, Add a little salt and cover. Cook over low heat for about 15 minutes. When the artichokes are soft, Add half of the finely chopped parsley and turn off the heat.

Boil the pasta in salted water and drain it al dente, retaining part of the cooking water. Sauté the pasta with the artichokes, adding the cooking water to create an emulsion. Then, fire off, Add the cream, grated cheese and remaining parsley. Stir quickly and serve immediately. Bon appétit!
