Hooray for simplicity! Brooklyn pioneers Andrew Feinberg and Francine Stephens prove repeatedly that food doesn’t need to be complicated to sing. The rustic Southern Italian recipes in Franny’s are what home cooks want. A perfect example: this spaghetti with fresh artichokes in a tangy, spicy, garlicky sauce. It’s classic but unforgettable.
Spaghetti with Artichokes
The flavors in this recipe are very Roman: a combination of artichokes and Pecorino Romano, along with chili, garlic, and parsley, is something you’d see in a trattoria in the Eternal City. We like the addition of the softer Parmigiano-Reggiano, which imparts a milky creaminess to balance out the Pecorino’s piquant saltiness.
