Our valentines dinner wasn’t that great. I made Pappardelle with Artichokes and Arugula. I’ve been trying to like arugula, figuring that if it keeps making appearances in our dinners eventually I’ll grow to like it. Kind of how I went from hating cilantro to loving it. Well the arugula wasn’t the problem. This recipe actually called for the sun-dried tomatoes in oil and to use some of that oil plus the oil from the artichokes. I only had artichoke oil so it came out kind of briney tasting. Fortunately we had haagen dazs ice cream for dessert.
