perfectly delish pasta dish

very rarely do i get a request for a repeat performance of a specific meal....but last night Pat asked for the same pasta I made last week - and let me tell you it was just as good the second time around. This isn't really a recipe, becasue I don't know exact amounts but it is close enough so try it on your own....oh yeah and this makes a large portion (we are all about the leftovers) so don't freak out about the amount of butter :)...or actually maybe you/I should.
In a large pan combine:
3/4 of a stick of Butter (i know so Paula Dean of me)
fresh garlic - then let it melt
chopped mushrooms
chopped sundried tomatoes
quartered artichoke hearts
sliced black olives
parmesan cheese
white wine (probably about a cup - i just poured though)
then let it simmer so all the flavors mesh together
Grill up some chicken with crushed black pepper, salt, and Italian seasoning.
Boil up some bow tie pasta
throw it all into the pan....toss it around until the pasta is coated
and Enjoy!

Katie! I just made this for dinner and it was awesome! Chad just got his third helping :) The only thing I did differently is subbing fresh spinach for the musrooms. I waited to add the spinach till the last few minutes so it didn't get too mushy. Yummmmmmy! Thanks!
