The steam made the picture come out blurry, but oh well. This is a veggie pasta from the Modern Vegetarian Cookbook. Basically this pasta has everything but the kitchen sink in it: artichoke hearts, fennel, chickpeas, shiitake mushrooms, onion, garlic, parsley, thyme, italian tomatoes, and some parmesan on top.
The recipe was much too fussy for a pasta recipe, so we used packaged artichoke hearts and didn't run the tomatoes through a food mill. Believe it or not, this pasta was about 10 times better the next day because all of the flavors melded and became super tasty.
