Even artichokes have a heart… and don’t we know it!

In the film titled “The fabulous destiny of Amélie Poulain”, at one point the protagonist exclaims “Even artichokes have a heart”, an amusing statement which is absolutely true: artichokes are good for you, very versatile and an exceptional detoxifier, especially for the liver and bowels.

To fully appreciate their flavour and reap the benefits of their health-giving properties, Pasta & Company presents its fresh pasta and fine food specialities containing artichokes: delicious fillings in which the best part of the artichoke, the heart, is combined with other equally tasty ingredients to produce dishes that are sure to please everyone!

Here are some quick tips on what sauce to serve with our ravioli.

  • Oil aromatized with chopped calamint and a dusting of pecorino romano, an ideal way to serve our ravioli filled with artichokes and sausage meat or those with artichokes and bacon;
  • Butter aromatized with thyme is a perfect way to dress our girasoli filled with artichokes and ricotta cheese;
  • Artichoke sauce, prepared simply by cooking trimmed and chopped artichokes with oil and shallots. Sprinkle with white wine and allow it to evaporate, season with salt and pepper to taste and then blend everything to obtain a creamy sauce. Serve this sauce with our artichoke-filled ravioli, and not only!
