Pasta dishes are a quick weeknight meal, but we are often at a loss for creating something different. This Greek Chicken Pasta dish is so flavorful and, most importantly, simple to make. It uses the classic garlic and olive oil of many Greek dishes with the unique flavor of marinated artichokes and the freshness of lemon. Try whole wheat linguine to make it even healthier!

This covered dish favorite can be made a day ahead of time, with the dressing added up to an hour before serving. Avocados are good sources of heart-healthy fats, and since this recipe only calls for half, try doubling the dressing and using the extra dressing on grilled vegetables. The acid in the dressing will keep the avocado from browning the way it would if left wrapped in the refrigerator.
