After our rousing success with the Barbecue Shredded Beef sandwiches we decided to look through back issues of Cook's Country for meal ideas for the rest of the week. Tonight's dinner, Artichoke Alfredo Sauce:
... came from a recipe contest the magazine had back in the October/November 2005 issue. This was one of the runner's-up and was based on the flavors of artichoke dip. If we hadn't been discussing what to do with a can of artichoke hearts SP found in the back of the pantry I'm not sure I would have ever thought to make this dish but I'm really glad I did. It was outstanding. Then again, I am a huge fan of artichoke dip. And for my money you can't go wrong with a recipe that involves sour cream, heavy cream, onions and garlic. Obviously this is not something to eat all the time, but it was a nice sinful indulgence. SP isn't a huge fan of artichokes so we'll see what he thinks of this dish. If it was up to me this would join my repertoire. It was incredibly easy to make and dinner was on the table in less than 30 minutes. Rachael Ray would be proud.
