Artichoke and Plum Tomato Pasta

Artichoke and Plum Tomato Pasta
"Mediterranean is one of my top favorite types of food, so when I saw an artichoke and olive pasta, I had to make it! This pasta dish was on the lighter side, which I thought was perfect for summer! I used Meyer Lemon Olive Oil to give it that freshness I so badly wanted" Catherine "Kitty" O'Connell of Rockville Centre, NY
