  • 1 x 400g tin artichoke hearts, drained, roughly chopped

  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

  • 2 bunches fresh asparagus, cut into 2 inch pieces

  • 400g gluten free wholemeal fettuccine

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 cup fresh spinach

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest

  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese


  1. Drain liquid from artichoke hearts, placing in paper towel and wringing to get out excess liquid, roughly chop and set aside.

  2. Fill a large pot full with water, adding 2 teaspoons of salt and bring to the boil. Add in asparagus, cooking uncovered for 1 minute. Remove and place into ice water, drain and set aside.

  3. Using the same pot of water, bring back to the boil and cook fettuccine following package directions. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup pasta water.

  4. While the pasta is cooking, in a large frypan, heat 1 Tbs oil over medium-high heat. Add artichoke hearts and cook for 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add in spinach and garlic and cook for a further minute.

  5. Add pasta, asparagus, feta, lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, and remaining 2 Tbs oil. Mix to combine, adding extra pasta water to coat if needed.

  6. Serve immediately with parmesan cheese.
