    1/2 lb (250 g) linguine noodles

    1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil, plus more for drizzling

    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) cooked green lentils

    1 (12 oz/340 mL) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and quartered

    2/3 cup (150 mL) roughly chopped sundried tomatoes, packed in oil

    1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh basil

    1 lemon, zest and juice

    1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

    1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper

    1 cup (250 mL) grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add linguine and cook according to package directions.
  2. While linguine is cooking, heat oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Let garlic cook for about 5 minutes. You do not want the garlic to brown too quickly so you may have to adjust the heat.
  3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and return it to the pot. Add warm garlic oil, lentils, artichoke, sundried tomatoes, basil, and lemon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the pasta into four bowls. Drizzle with a little more oil and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese.
