'BOTW' Spinach Fettuccine with Artichokes and Sundried Tomatoes


The combination of sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and pasta are right up there at the top of my favorite flavor combinations.  I love the sweetness of the sundried tomatoes and when combined with pasta, salad or a warmed dish, they're just the best.

This week's 'Best of the Web' belongs to Whole Food's recipe for Spinach Fettuccine with Artichokes and Sundried Tomatoes.  So simple to make.  An elegant dish and goes perfect with a glass of red wine on a Friday night.....what do you think?!
