Zesty Artichoke Basil Sauce

I received this recipe from a friend and she told me I would love it. Boy was she right! It was even a hit with my 3 and 1 year old. This is a great meal for those busy days when you don't have much time to cook. It took less than 30 minutes to cook. Hope you enjoy!

16 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained with marinade reserved
1 cup silvered onion
1 large garlic clove, minced
14.5 oz. diced tomatoes, undrained
6 oz  tomato paste
1 cup water
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In 2.5 qt. saucepan, heat reserved artichoke marinade. Cook and stir onion and garlic in marinade for 2-3 minutes until tender. Chop artichoke hearts, add to onion mixture with tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, water, basil and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered 15-20 minutes.

2. While sauce simmers, cook pasta according to package directions.

3. Serve sauce over pasta and Enjoy!
