Soon to come Vanilla Sugar, Vanilla Icecream, Apple Butter, the mighty-savory Pork Roast with Citrus Honey Glaze, and maybe a couple others. For now, here is a delicious and easy go to recipe to fill in the gaps. It's my Grandma's Creamy Pasta Salad with Artichoke Hearts. I've recreated this recipe using a bunch of varieties, such as adding chopped spinach, olives, or feta. Have fun with it and you'll have an easy go to side dish always tucked away in your memory's recipe box.
Time: 5 min Serves: 4
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 cups cooked Orzo pasta
4 green onions, chopped
1, 6 oz jar artichoke hearts (drained and sliced)
1 1/2 tbsp basil, chopped or sliced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Mix all ingredients together, and taste for more mayo or seasonings. Chill until ready to serve.
In the one pictured above I also added chopped spinach leaves, finely diced celery, sliced parmesan, olives, and oregano.
Grandma's Notes: I add a little Italian salad dressing and I suppose you could add olives or peas, etc.
