Veggie Tuesday

Tomatoe, Tamatoe however you prefer to say it. I have had this recipe for years it is so easy you can whip it up in a couple of minutes. We have even been known to serve it cold and not even bother with the stove. It makes a great salad or a main dish vegetable. The nuts add allot of flavor and a little crunch. Very good and low in calories also.
Artichokes and Tomatoes

1 pint of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of artichoke hearts cut into quarters
2 tablespoons of Olive oil
2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup snipped parsley

Cook and stir pecans, cheese, salt and pepper in oil in 10 inch skillet over medium heat until nuts are coated and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add artichoke hearts and tomatoes. Cook, stirring constantly, just until vegetables are hot, about 3 minutes. Stir in parsley.
