1/2 lb. of spaghetti cooked
1 1/2 cup of marinated artichoke hearts with some liquid
1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese + a little more for the table
I use Cara Mia marinated artichokes that I buy in the large size at Sam's club. A 64 ounce jar is under $9 and lasts months. I eat them just plain as well or use them for a side dish or a light lunch by mixing with cooked rice and topping with parmesan cheese. The liquid adds quite a bit of flavor so I always use that whenever cooking with them.
