"This was wonderful - one of the best pasta dishes I have ever made and really quick and easy - it doesn't get much better than that!!! Since one of my daughters is a vegetarian, I made a small batch for her minus the chicken. Didn't really change anything but I did add a little extra feta and a small can of sliced black olives. Also used a 12 oz. jar of marinated artichokes which seemed to be a good amount and drizzled some of the olive oil marinade over the finished dish. Oh wow - it was just so darn good!!!"

"I love this recipe. This is probably the first time i have ever cooked with artichoke. It was yummy! I didnt have fresh oregano so I used dried. It was still flavorful."

"Great recipe! Left out the red onion and cut back on the artichoke for our tastes, but it was delicious."
