I tend to be a fuddy duddy when I go to restaurants and this is the only thing I ever order from Carinos! Although I love the dish there was something bitter I couldn’t quite identify that I wished wasn’t in there… I used your recipe (added wine and kosher salt) but used neutral grape seed oil instead and I thought it came out just like it, only better without the bitter! I haven’t been in quite some time but I don’t ever remember there being basil in it, so i didn’t use. Thanks for coming up with this recipe!
Opps and butter and black pepper to the angel hair 🙂
I am so glad you liked it.
This is a new favorite for my family!
I don’t have this restaurant in my neck of the woods, so I won’t know the difference when I exchange the fresh Roma’s for canned, fixed tomatoes – to make it a shelf-stable recipe. Thanks!
Sounds like we’d enjoy this dish. Can I use canned (drained & thoroughly blotted dry) artichoke hearts in this recipe? I’d use frozen ones, but I can’t find them anywhere around here where we live.
Yes you can use canned ones.
I haven’t tried your recipe yet but this is my favorite dish at Carino’s. So I’m going to give it a try. I will say that I appreciate you sharing it. I don’t understand why people are being so negative to you! If someone doesn’t like it or think they can do better then good for them but I for one don’t like to read people’s rudeness. So again I thank you for sharing.
I’d recommend sautéing the garlic in olive oil for a minute or two before adding the rest of the ingredients. Always best to toss your pasta with your cooked items to coat with its sauce and add a fresh squeeze of lemon juice at the end.
Definitely making this sometime soon. So I should add white wine to this?
Carinoshad a bread with bowl cheesy dip on appetizer menu. Hasn’t been on menu in few years. Can’t remeber what it was called, but DELICIOUS!!! You could have plain, have crab added, sausage. Would love to get that recipe if anyone has Ideas.
I just made this dish today for my family. I used all the above ingredients plus I sliced very thin pieces of a cooked chicken breast to add to it. It was wonderful. Tasted just like the restaurant version. It was quick, easy and so delicious. Topped off with some Parmigiano-Reggiano to serve.
There is parmesan cheese in this dish.
Thank You so much!! I had this dish on my first visit and fell in love with it!!
The wife had this last night with the addition of shrimp. We asked what was in the sauce. They said White wine, Vegetable broth, spices. I am going to try it with half white wine, half vegetable broth and a pinch of itialian herbs.
This is all I ever have there. I can guarantee there is none of the above in it. Try this recipe just like above, tastes the same.
this recipe is on their website. no wine.
I generally don’t believe the website’s of the restaurants give out recipes that taste exactly the same. I appreciate the link though!
My Wife and I are making this dish for our two year anniversary. It’s my favorite at Carino’s, and i cant wait to taste it homemade. What kind of wine do you think they put in it? pinot gris maybe?
I would use a dry white wine, maybe a chardonay? Happy Anniversary, I hope you many more happy anniversaries together!
You need about a of vegetable stock to make the sauce for this dish.
How much vegetable stock do you think you need? I think something was left out in your comment.

I ordered this dish today and asked the waitress if they might be willing to share this recipe. I told her what I thought might be in it and she added she thought they put a little wine in with it and they also added chopped basil. But no they weren’t willing to share. I do know it had the basil as I picked a piece out and examined it.
Thank you!!!! Can’t wait to try it!
This is a delicious and very easy pasta dish. If you don’t like capers, simply omit them. I just had this dish tonight at Carino’s and didn’t taste fresh basil in it…maybe dried, but I doubt it.
Carino’s has basil and is tossed with Parmesan cheese.
This is my favorite dish at Carinos. Hope it tastes as good homemade!
