Bring the flavors of the Mediterranean to your dinner table any night of the week. This recipe is such a breeze, you'll almost feel guilty about how good it tastes. Almost, but not quite.

Ingredients

  • 1 8- to9-ounce bag dried cheese tortelloni
  • 1 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
  • 2 6-ounce jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil

Directions

  • Cook tortelloni in a pasta pot of boiling salted water according to package instructions.
  • While tortelloni boils, sauté red peppers, artichoke hearts, and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper in butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer sauce to a large bowl.
  • Reserve ½ cup pasta-cooking water, then drain tortelloni and add to red pepper-artichoke sauce along with some of reserved cooking water and basil. Toss well and season with salt and pepper. Thin with additional pasta-cooking water, if desired.
