I do not care for lemon so was not sure I'd like this but cut the lemon juice in half and it was marvelous.

Very good. Made the recipe exactly as stated except I took a reviewer's advice and increased the spaghetti (to 6 oz.) and was glad I did. We like our pasta and there was still plenty of liquid. Will definitely make again.

I'm not a real artichoke fan, but this recipes folds them in very nicely. I also don't usually have much luck cooking pasta in with the other ingredients, so I cooked the spaghetti separately and added it at the end. The dish is attractive and very tasty.

This was totally delicious! I topped it with Parmesan instead of feta since that's what I had on hand. I'll definitely be making this in the future.

I remember Roxanne Chan appearing in a section of a Better Homes & Garden Issue decades ago where they featured winners! Well, Roxanne, you have another winner! I loved the quick way it went together and the flavors worked so well together. My husband asked me to put in more pasta next time--not only would he simply like to eat more pasta but he felt all the liquids make it a tad soup-y. I did add feta cheese to the top in the serving bowl. Yum! I also left out the red pepper strips b/c I didn't have any.
