TFF Penne with Baby Artichokes, Black Olives and Peas

I don't know if I already told you that my husband has a worried look when I praise Tyler Florence (but he shouldn't !) it's only that with his help I can cook a good dish even in these days (few left !!!) when my fridge is sad and I feel guilty every moment I'm not sewing !
So the other evening I found this recipe where I used frozen peas and frozen artichokes
and some powdered orange zests I had prepared in the winter. We all (but the usual ONE) enjoied it very much !
Please visit the blog to find out many more wonderful recipes !

Here is the final 'corner' !

And my beautiful even if neglected plants !

I love any kind of pasta, any kind of pasta.

Hmmmm...powdered orange zests is a new one to me. How do you make it?

I make orange sugar with zest and this keep forever is a very pretty confection to sprinkle on my cupcakes.

First of all Natalia, I should say that you have quite the green thumb. Your flowers look STUNNING!! And this penne dish looks quite amazing, too. You're multi-talented :) I love artichokes, olives, and peas, so this dish is really a dream come true. Great job! No need for your hubby to have a concerned look on his face; he's getting fed super well!

;o) isn't it grand that gardens love some degree of neglect.
I really need to try this artichoke and peas! That really looks wonderful. And from somewhere this week I have an artichoke craving.

Well, thanks to Tyler, your husband got a great dinner (and you got to prepare something quickly!) Good luck with finishing the needlework; then maybe you can play in the garden!
