Artichokes shine in this creamy deconstructed seafood pasta dish.


Step 1

Bring salted water to a boil in steam-jacketed kettle or large stockpot on stove top. Add pasta; cook as directed on package.

Step 2

Combine langoustines with parsley and ¼ cup olive oil. Cover and refrigerate to marinate

Step 3

Cut 1-inch off top and bottom of each artichoke. Trim off tough outer leaves; remove choke. Dice 8 of the artichokes.

Step 4

Melt butter in large rondeau on medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup olive oil, onion, garlic and thyme; cook 4-5 min. or until translucent. Add diced artichokes; cook 2-3 min. or until softened. Deglaze pan with wine and broth. Reduce heat to medium low; cover and cook for 10 min. or until artichokes are tender. Remove from heat. Working in batches, blend onion mixture and cream to form a smooth puree. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Thinly slice remaining artichokes; dust with flour. Heat remaining olive oil in large sauté pan on medium-high heat. Cook artichoke slices 3-5 min. or until crisp and golden brown. Season with salt to taste.

Step 6

Heat large skillet over medium heat; add marinated langoustines. Cook 3-4 min. or until cooked through.

Step 7

For each portion, spread ¼ cup artichoke puree on plate. Top evenly with pasta, langoustine and fried artichoke slices.
