This is a light pasta recipe that can be eaten hot during the Fall and Winter months and easily transition into a pasta salad for the Summer. Sundried Tomatoes and Artichoke Hearts are a match made in heaven and Arugula is used to cut the acidic nature of the two ingredients.
Note: When looking for ingredients, try and find artichoke hearts canned in water rather than oil. Watch out for oversalting the pasta before trying it together with all the ingredients. Feta's natural saltiness will create a perfect little punch every couple of bites.

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
4 Sprigs Thyme, Chopped
3/4 Cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes Soaked in Olive Oil - Chopped
1 Can Artichoke Hearts
8 oz Feta, Cubed
1 Cup Arugula
Half a small Lemon or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
