Giada’s Mushroom and Artichoke Pasta

When ever I get the chance to watch Giada at Home and I see a recipe I like, I have to go immediately to print it or I will forget to make it. So that is what I did with this recipe when I watched an old episode of Everyday Italian and I’ve had it in my file for almost 8 months! I made it tonight for our early dinner and it was so great. I used cremini and shitake mushrooms and Vitamin D milk instead of cream. So delicious. Print the recipe here.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound mushrooms, trimmed, cleaned and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus 3/4 teaspoon
  • 1 cup dry Marsala wine
  • 1 pound thimble pasta
  • 1/2 pound frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Place the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Saute, stirring occasionally, until all the moisture has evaporated and the mushrooms have cooked down, about 10 minutes. Add the Marsala and continue cooking until almost all the wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Stir in remaining salt. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta and add it into the mushrooms, Marsala and onions Add the artichoke hearts, Parmesan and cream and cook until the artichokes are heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
