Feed The Resistance: Artichoke Hearts for Heart Month!

As the month of February comes to a close, so does American Heart Month.  As I was thinking about American Heart Month, of course my mind went to “Heart Healthy” food…and then I quickly moved on…to ARTICHOKE HEARTS!  Since we’ve had this weirdly warm winter, a nice summery pasta salad sounded good, so a made a really simple pasta salad with artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and black olives.  That’s really all there is to the salad – the dressing comes from the marinade that the artichokes were in, so you just cook up the pasta and add a jar of artichoke hearts, some cherry tomatoes and some black olives.  Done!  It’s that simple.

To pair with the summery salad, Dee brought in a good summery beer – a Classic Lime Beer from Garage Beer!  And as usual, she nailed it!  The whole meal felt and tasted like SUMMER!
