Pasta with Tomato Ginger Sauce & Artichokes !

DSC01348  
When I can’t decide what to cook, pasta is always there for help. Most often when prepared, I do like to give a little Indian touch to the dish, so that our taste buds do not complain ! But I must tell you’ll this had been one the most tastiest pasta. With tomato and ginger, nothing could just go wrong and to top with, I had added the artichokes, basil and parsley will still maintain the Italian flavors to the dish !!
Artichokes have medicinal value and is considered  as an aid to digestion, strengthens the liver function, gall bladder function, and lowers HDL/LDL ratio by which it reduces cholesterol levels.
