Pappardelle with artichoke hearts and mushrooms

Tonight was the last night of the musical and my daughter is now at a cast party. Since we have to stay up to give her a ride home I figured I'd post tonight's dinner. I did kind of a rushed dinner before the play tonight. I found some whole wheat (and egg free) pappardelle at Trader Joe's and made a sauce of mushrooms sauteed with garlic in olive oil, a can of artichokes cut into quarters, some dried basil, lemon juice and cherry tomatoes. It is loosely based on the Easy Artichoke Sauce recipe from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home. I also made baguettes - which come to think of it isn't something to make when you're trying to get dinner on the table in a hurry. I'm not sure what I was thinking. But the house smelled great with the bread in the oven!
