I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was spent mostly complaining about how I stayed up until midnight (I do anyway, let’s be real) on Saturday to get some #LillyforTarget stuffs and BEFORE IT WAS EVEN OFFICIALLY LIVE, it was all sold out.
Y’all. I had the dress I wanted in my cart and by the time I entered my card info, it was gone.
I got very little unpacking done because I was also busy watching all the shows I missed while hotel living. I am so into Younger. So good.
Also, unpacking is annoying.
You know how when you pack your own house, you fill a single box with all your blankets? And then you put all your dishes in a box and label it “kitchen”? And all your bathroom stuff goes in one box?
I think when we weren’t looking, our movers sprinted through the house, grabbing an item from each room, and then pulled a room out of a hat to label it.
I found my bathroom scale in a box labeled toys, my favorite boots in a box labeled dog pillows (I mean, what is a dog pillow?!), and I still can’t find the part of my favorite lamp that holds the lampshade.
Why did they take apart a lamp and put all the pieces in different boxes, you ask?
Anyway, we did have this pasta over the weekend and it was absolutely delicious. It’s got three of my favorite foods: sausage, artichokes, and Parmesan! Plus pasta and sun-dried tomatoes and even some fresh basil mixed in.
This is my idea of a good summer pasta since it’s light but still comforting.

Pasta with Sausage, Artichokes, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
from Food Network
- ¾ cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, sliced, plus 2 tablespoons of oil
- 1 pound Italian hot sausages, casings removed
- 1 15-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained
- 2 large cloves garlic, minced
- 1 ¾ cups chicken broth
- ½ cup dry white wine
- 16 ounces small pasta
- ½ cup shredded Parmesan, plus additional for garnish
- ⅓ cup chopped fresh basil leaves
- ¼ cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Heat the oil reserved from the tomatoes in a heavy pan over medium-high heat.
- Add the sausages and cook until no pink remains, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Drain sausage and transfer it to a bowl; set aside.
- Add the artichokes and garlic to the same pan, and cook over medium heat until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the broth, wine, and sun-dried tomatoes. Bring to a boil and allow cook until it thickens slightly, about 8 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package instructions. Drain the pasta (do not rinse). Add the pasta, sausage, ½ cup Parmesan, basil, and parsley to the artichoke mixture. Toss until the sauce is almost absorbed by the pasta. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Serve with more Parmesan on top.

GAH. Unpacking is. the. worst. ! I remember the last time, our movers actually packed trash. GARBAGE. I mean, whhhyyyyyy? Sausage, artichokes, and Parmesan are 3 of my favs, too *high five*
Amy @ A Healthy Life For Me says
That Targer, is an addiction and they are always out of what I want to order. I love artichokes so this is my kind of recipe!

So my Best Friend and her family are stationed in Japan and she always hates when they pack her stuff. First some boxes will arrive (like the photos and such) but the important boxes, like clothes, towel and toys for the kids take weeks, weeks and more weeks. I’m sorry. I feel your pain. This pasta looks right up my alley though. Love all those veggies. Gotta try this asap! Good luck this week! ;-)

That was just crazy that Target sold out so quickly. I’m hoping they restock soon. This pasta looks so delicious, I love artichokes in just about everything.

Haha, I think I’m way too OCD to not pack my own house! Lol. I hope you find the rest of your things soon. This pasta looks way too good! Pinned :)

oh my gawd!!! ok, the #LillyforTarget clothes. . OH MY GAWD . . I wanted that Strapless Maxi Dress – Nosie Posey!!! I don’t know how people got stuff. . everything sold out in like a second. I feel your pain sister. And don’t even get me started on moving and the punk ass people who did out packing. . we have moved twice in the last three years (all for hubby’s job) and thankfully, had packers and movers. . the first time they actually did an ok job but packed everything, like some trash too and all the dangerous liquid you’re not supposed to pack. WTH? and the second time was a mess. . I wasn’t paying attention b/c I was watching my kid and the punks did exactly what you said, i swear they packed like five random things in “kitchen” boxes and all sorts of random things in the “bedroom” box. . AND they broke two lamps and tried to hide it? can you believe that? anyway, I’m getting worked up again just writing all of this. . pass me some pasta please! :P
heather @french press says
yum, just YUM – and sorry about the Lilly…I didn’t even think about online, I drove myself to Target when they opened – I got a dress, but the shorts I wanted were already GONE
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says
I am a big artichoke fan and this is right up my alley! I know how you feel about missing out on deals, it is like everyone else has the same idea as us. I try to have my information typed in before I place items into my cart :)
Heather | girlichef says
This is exactly the kind of meal my family goes for on a weenight – fast, delicios, full of flavor – yum. And HOLY COW, that is fast…people must have their cc info preloaded and have their finger on the trigger!
You had me at Artichokes! This looks delicious! When my husband was active duty we had movers move us and they did the same thing, and packed weird little random stuff like broken crayons and single socks….Think of it as a treasure hunt! :)
