1/2 box (8 oz) of mini ziti
1/2 jar artichoke hearts, chopped
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
lemon pepper seasoning (approx. 1 Tb)
red pepper flakes (to taste)
onion flakes (sprinkle)
salt (to taste)
shaved Parmesan cheese (to taste)
shrimp (if you want a protein)
Bring a medium size pot of salted water to boil, add your ziti and cook until done. I like mine slightly al dente, the Mr. likes it softer.
Once done, drain the pasta and add to a large bowl.
Give the pasta a couple turns of olive oil, just enough to lightly coat it.
Season as desired. I used lemon pepper, red pepper flakes, onion flakes and salt.
Toss in the chopped artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes. Top with shaved Parmesan cheese. That’s where I stopped (top picture).
The Mr. recently picked up some tail-off shrimp scampi so he cooked some up and added it to his pasta (bottom picture).
YUM! I rarely use lemon pepper. I’ll have to try to work it into more recipes. This looks amazing! I love the shrimp 🙂
This looks Yummy!!!!

Oh my goodness. Now I am hungry. The one with shrimp looks delicious.
I have searched high and low for mini ziti. I keep seeing links to Barilla but when I follow them it’s not there so I assume they discontinued it. I know I could use another shape but I don’t want to. It’s mind boggling that I can’t find it anywhere! Thanks for any help!

I think my local stores (Kroger & Meijer) have store brand. I’ll keep my eye out next time!
