Italian sautéed Artichokes and Potatoes or Carciofi e Patate is a favorite side served dish during a traditional Easter dinner.
I don't know about you, but I've certainly had enough of winter and snow this season. That's why I decided to make these Italian Artichokes & Potatoes or Carciofi e Patate in Italian; the light flavors just scream Spring!
How do you make Italian Artichokes and Potatoes?
For this recipe you'll need baby red potatoes, artichoke hearts, garlic, lemon juice, fresh basil, EVOO, salt and pepper.
Start by adding the potatoes to a double boiler, bring to a boil and cook over high heat until potatoes are fork tender; approximately 15-20 minutes.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet and add the cooked potatoes, artichoke hearts, garlic, lemon juice, and basil. Saute for about 10 minutes until the potatoes start to lightly brown; then season with salt and pepper.
Made with only six ingredients, these Italian Artichokes & Potatoes make the perfect side dish. They're made on top of the stove instead of using valuable oven space; especially when you usually need that real estate when cooking for a holiday.
This recipe makes enough for ten ½ cup servings and takes about 30 minutes to make. You can even prepare these the day before; then reheat in a skillet before you're ready to serve.
The flavor combination is simple, yet elegant enough to serve for a special occasion and they are delicious! If you have some leftover, heat them up for breakfast the next morning with some eggs. ~Enjoy!

I wouldn't have thought to combine potatoes & artichokes like this, but it looks great!
Thank you David, it's actually quite good. 🙂

I love finding a combination I've never thought of, especially when it is two things I love as much as I love potatoes and artichokes. I have a huge jar of artichoke hearts from Costco, they have some seasoning but I bet they would work wonderfully. Thanks!
I'm sure they will taste great. If you use some of the oil from that jar it would work too. Sounds good to me, thanks for stopping by!
I love artichoke hearts but have to admit I haven't played around with them enough. So I love finding new, interesting ideas to try them out.
Thanks for stopping by Laura!

What a perfect Easter side dish that I can see going equally as well with a grilled chicken dinner.
It would go well with chicken, fish or a lean pork I think. It's very light.

This is an ideal side dish for Easter dinner!! I love it's simplicity - allowing the potatoes and artichokes to find their full voice!
Thanks for stopping by Susan!

Count my vote for "we've had enough snow already!" too. This looks like such a perfect spring dish, especially those of us still experiencing somewhat cold temperatures. Light enough to feel like warmer weather but still hearty enough to fit the bill when there's still some chill in the air. Love it!
