This zippy entree from Athena Russell of Florence, South Carolina looks and tastes special, but it’s a cinch to make. “When I get home from work, I like to prepare quick dishes, and this is one of our favorites,” Athena says.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 24, 2011

"I made this recipe this evening exactly as stated in the magazine. My husband ate it and said it was "okay". My 9 year old didn't like it at all. I too thought it was just okay. I think because we are used to a more creamier type of sauce with our pastas we thought this seemed more "oily" tasting than flavorful. We won't make this again nor would I recommend it unless you like a non-creamy sauce type pasta dish."

"I don't have artichokes, don't like them, dried tomatoes, or fresh spinach, but want to try this recipe, it sounds wonderful.  Can I leave out the artichokes, use canned tomatoes, and frozen spinach?  Ruth"
