  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion minced
  • 3 medium garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes with Italian herbs, in oil drained
  • 2 1/2 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 8 oz Modern Table penne pasta
  • 1 14 ounce can quartered artichoke hearts (in water, not marinated) drain and remove any tough outer pieces
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • fresh sliced basil leaves for garnish


  • Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Saute the onions and garlic until the onions are translucent.
  • While the onions and garlic saute, place the drained sun-dried tomatoes and chicken stock into a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add the tomato-chicken stock mixture to the pan with the onions and garlic. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add the pasta, and return the sauce to a boil. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes.
  • Stir the pasta, and add the artichoke hearts and spinach. Cover again and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until the pasta is tender. Check it to make sure it's al dente and you don't overcook it.
  • When the pasta is cooked, add the cream and feta cheese. Stir to combine and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with fresh sliced basil, if desired.
