Penne Pasta with Italian Sausage and Artichokes

I am always craving a carb-loaded, delicious meal.  I'm a lover of all Italian food, and I don't think anyone can go wrong with pasta.  Recently, I have been watching Laura Vitale's cooking videos on YouTube, and I've been inspired to get my butt in the kitchen and make something other than my lazy go-to of scrambled eggs.

I decided to tackle her recipe for pasta with Italian sausage and artichokes, and easy to say, I was not disappointed, and neither were my eating companions.  So much so that I may have helped myself to thirds.  If you are a pasta and meat lover, this is the meal for you.  Plus, you get a dose of greens with the artichokes!  I found that the mixture was a little watery at first, but if you increase the heat to let the sausage and artichokes cook down, you'll be fine!

Ingredients (I doubled this recipe to make a ridiculous amount of pasta):
1 lb Italian sausage
1 can of artichokes
1 box of penne pasta
2 tbsp butter
3 cloves of garlic
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp parsley
1/2 cup parmesian cheese

To make:

  1. Remove casings from your Italian sausage
  2. Add olive oil to a hot skillet, and add your sausage
  3. Cook the sausage until brown, and add your artichokes
  4. Cook the artichokes + sausage for about 6 minutes
  5. Boil your water and add pasta
  6. Add garlic to your sausage mixture, reduce heat, and cook for about a minute
  7. Add butter, parsley, and a bit of the water from the pasta
  8. Add pasta, combine, and enjoy!
