Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Sauté garlic in olive oil. Add tomatoes with juice, basil, oregano, parsley and honey. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add artichoke hearts, pine nuts and capers. Heat through. Meanwhile cook pasta for 8-10 minutes; do not overcook. Add broccoli for the last 2-3 minutes. Drain. Serve with sauce. Serves 4.
