3 cups uncooked penne rigate pasta

Directions:
1. Combine 4 cups water and juice. Cut off stem of each artichoke to within 1" of base; peel stem. Remove bottom leaves and all tough outer leaves, leaving only tender heart and bottom. Cut each artichoke in half lengthwise. Remove fuzzy thistle from bottom with a spoon. Thinly slice each artichoke heart; place in lemon water. Drain.
2. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic to pan; cook 1 minute. Add artichokes and 1/4 tsp salt; cover and cook 10 minutes or until artichokes are tender, stirring occasionally.
3. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain pasta in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Combine remaining 1 tbsp olive oil, remaining 1/2 tsp salt, artichoke mixture, pasta, reserved cooking liquid, parsley and pepper in a large bowl, tossing to combine. Add ricotta in spoonfuls, stirring gently to combine. Spoon 1-1/3 c pasta mixture into each of six bowls; top each serving with 2 tbsp Parmigianino Reggiano cheese.

Most of the time is spent preparing the artichokes for cooking. It is worth spending the time. Delicious. Biggest problem is eating too much of it.
