Pasta Salad With Artichokes And Sprouts Recipe

Step 1

Cook the pasta al dente, then rinse it with cool water. Drain the pasta well and put it in a mixing bowl.

Step 2

Chop the artichokes into bite-sized pieces and add them to the pasta.

Step 3

Add the alfalfa sprouts, separating the strands as much as possible with a fork, and the remaining ingredients. Mix well and allow to stand for 1 to 2 hours either at room temperature or refrigerated before serving.

Variation: To serve as a main dish salad, garnish with hard-boiled eggs or add some diced mozzarella cheese.
