Spinach Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Some of the greatest pasta dishes I have ever enjoyed are those that I make myself. Lately, I have been relatively unimpressed by restaurants and am left either dissatisfied or disappointed when leaving them. I think it is because I love to cook and find that my food gives them a real run for their money or I simply don't prefer what they make.

One of my favorite dishes to make is pasta. All pasta. It's quick, it is easy, and when prepared correctly--tastes incredible. Homemade pasta is the best, as it simply doesn't compare to the pasta you find in the box or bag at your local grocery store. That pasta is more than likely dehydrated and doesn't possess the real, tried and true flavor of what pasta is. 

Sure, that is convenient and efficient, but it doesn't satisfy a pasta polymath's taste buds by any means at all. And most of what you enjoy is nothing more than just flavor. The pasta becomes meaningless and you find yourself enamored more by the sauce rather than the pasta itself. 

Texture is everything when cooking any kind of pasta and flavor is what brings virtually every dish together. This pasta only incorporates a few ingredients. 

These ingredients are: spinach tagliatelle, spinach, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, cipollini onion, Himalayan salt, black pepper, and fresh water. For good measure, I garnished this dish with a little bit of extra extra extra virgin olive oil. 

And guess what? This pasta is amazing. 

The best part is, this dish is vegan, so it is perfect for those of you that do not consume dairy, eggs, or honey, as it is great for those of you who are plant-based and want to enjoy a wonderful plate of pasta at home.  

Pasta is an extremely universal dish that is made up an array of other dishes. As a cult-classic staple in the realm of fine dining, if you are looking to enjoy incredible pasta, simply make it homemade. You will not only thank me later, but you will be so proud of yourself for creating something flavorful right in the comfort of your own home.
