The Perfect Pasta Dish for a Busy Busy Monday

Do you ever feel like you have a thousand things to do and about ten minutes to get them done?  That's my life this week!  Thankfully I managed to do most of the cooking for the week yesterday. 

Tonight's dinner was a prime example of quite possibly the simplest pasta dish out there, that is a little bit dressier than the typical tomato sauce version.

Artichoke Pesto-Style Pasta

Recipe: 
1 bag gluten free pasta of choice
1 jar artichoke bruschetta topping

Optional: Parmesan or Romano cheese as garnish, or some chopped, fresh herbs.  Omit cheese for the dairy free version.

1-Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and return to pot.
2- Toss with jar of artichoke bruschetta topping and transfer to serving bowl. 
3- Garnish with shaved Parmesan or sprinkle with grated cheese.  We go dairy free because of my son, so some sprigs of parsley or some chopped fresh basil add some bright colour to our plates.

Serve hot!
