Ravioli with Artichoke Sauce


Happy start of the week!  For you to enjoy tonight's recipe you must like artichokes and peas - though I really think the peas could be left out... so now we are back to artichokes! I like artichokes especially in a dip... I would love someone's recipe for a yummy spinach artichoke dip - I feel a craving coming on.  Anyway back to dinner, this recipe called for frozen artichoke hearts - no luck at Target so I substituted canned ones and think that was just fine.  It came together quite quickly... in fact a little too quick.  I thought Mr. John would be home around 6:30 but he needed to run an errand after his club time.  Luckily a quick reheat and dinner was served.
