WOW!! I couldn't believe how good this recipe is! I was wary with the low-fat stuff in it but it was great. My husband accidentally got me marinated artichokes when I just wanted ones in water and now I am glad he did! I used bowtie pasta and didn't use the full 12 ounces. It was so good I immediately ran a taste to my neighbor who also loves artichokes. She also gave it five stars. I can't wait to taste the leftovers tomorrow. Think I'll add some fresh tomatoes...

I made this recipe one step healthier by using whole wheat pasta for more protein and fiber. I used fat-free cottage cheese and fat-free sour cream. Very yummy. I definitely agree that 12 oz of pasta requires more than just 6 oz of artichoke hearts, so I beefed-up the recipe by adding about 15 sea scallops. Just throw them in as you are cooking the onion and garlic. It turned out GREAT! I'm sure that shrimp would work just as well!!! 25 g protein, 14 g fat, 9 g dietary fiber, 31 mg cholesterol,

Great pasta dish! I sauteed chicken cubed chicken breast in olive oil until cooked through and tossed them in the pasta-- tasted even better! My family all loved it, including my kids as did my in-laws who were dining with us! I will definitely make it again. Also, we LOVE arthichoke hearts, my whole family, so I had a can of non-marnited hearts, I tossed in also, it was very good and we all enjoyed more artichoke hearts. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
