Dukan Crock Pot Chicken Artichoke Pasta

HE SAID: Very good (he had seconds)
SHE SAID: Yes, agreed.

Crock Pot Chicken Artichoke Pasta
We tried this recipe before using heavy whipping cream and both enjoyed it.  Decided to Dukan the recipe since it looked simple enough.  Also, we use crushed tomatoes since the male half of this couple doesn't like tomatoes but will eat tomato sauce.  We recommend using Italian style diced tomatoes for this recipe.

This is a nice, light dish and went nicely on the House Brand Angel Hair Tofu Shirataki Angel Hair Noodles although you can really serve on any of the Tofu Shirataki noodles.  We did add some of our Rustica sauce from our lunch dish to add flavor.  If you prefer a thicker sauce, add a cornstarch paste made with 1 t of cornstarch and just a little bit of water.  Our original recipe calls for 1/2 c. pimento stuffed olives which doesn't seem to be allowed on the Dukan Diet.

Serves 2-3 (depending on how much you eat)
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 5-6 hours
4 qt. crock pot

1 - 28 oz. can Italian tomatoes (diced, stewed, etc)
1 - 13 or 14 oz. can of artichokes hearts in water, drained and lightly chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c. non-fat half-and-half
1/2 c. Rustica sauce from leftovers (recipe here)
2 packages of House Brand Tofu Shirataki Angel Hair Pasta

Cut chicken into bit size pieces and put into crock pot.  Pour tomatoes into crock pot.  Lightly chop the drained artichoke hearts and toss those in.  Add garlic.  Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours on low or until chicken is no longer pink.  Just before the meal is done cooking, boil noodles in salty water for at least 5 minutes, drain (do not rinse after boiling).  Before serving, mix in the non-fat half-and-half, Rustica sauce and pasta.

This tastes great with the stuffed olives, so we're looking forward to having the full recipe during Consolidation and Stabilization.
