"My boyfriend and I are vegetarians and so we made this without the pepperoni and it was delicious. Very good, we also changed the pasta to the radiatore and it mades it alot easier to eat. I would also recommend cutting the artichoke hearts into smaller pieces"

"I use two 9oz jars marinated baby artichoke hearts and 1 can sliced black olives and 2 cups uncooked pasta. I also double the dressing so more can be added after sitting over night. Love this recipe, have made it many times."
