How to make the Tagliatelle with Artichokes:

Clean the artichokes leaving only the tender parts of the hearts, and cut into very thin slices. Squeeze the juice of a lemon over them.

Saute the onion with butter over medium heat until pale gold. Add the sliced artichokes and 1/4 cup water. Cook until the artichokes are tender. Taste and correct for salt and pepper.

Cook the pasta, drain, add the artichoke sauce and the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Toss very thoroughly and serve.
