"Our Sunday school class was responsible for lunch after a funeral and I brought this delicious pasta dish. Everyone raved about it and many wanted the recipe. It is not only easy to prepare but delicious. I highly recommend this recipe.

"I agree with another reviewer on this, it was just okay for me. I love all of the ingredients, but it wasn't much of a sauce. I thought the flavors would really pop for me, but they didn't. And it was actually a pretty expensive dish to make, so I'll probably skip it next time."

"Although the flavors were good and it has my favorites like greek olives and artichokes the texture was not great. In the picture it looks like a light pasta dish - what I got was sticky sauce that overpowered the olives, artichokes and tomatoes. I am not in a hurry to try this again but when I do I may skip the butter/onions/chicken broth/flour and try tossing in olive oil."

"Yum! Good warm or cold and even tastier the next day. Followed the recipe exactly other than substituted 1/4 c. of sun dried tomato pesto for the sun dried tomatoes, as I had it on hand. I think that substitution made it even tastier as the flavor was then distributed to every bite."

"Loved it! We're not fans of artichoke, so I substituted small pieces of blanched thin asparagus!

I also had a pound of boneless/skinless chicken breast in the fridge, so pre-cooked it in a Rosemary/Garlic seasoning.
Hubby and I LOVED it - promptly inhaled :D"

"This was DELICIOUS! I didn't chop up the tomatoes well enough, and ended up with big, too-flavorful bites of tomato, so be sure to chop it before you mix it in.

I left out the olives, and it still turned out great. Be sure to chop up the artichoke and sun dried tomatoes really well, and use a big pot!"

"Pretty tasty! I added some spinach to it which may have made it less "saucy" than it normally would have been, but it was still really good. Gotta love the sun-dried tomato, artichoke heart, feta and olive combo. My sweetie doesn't like olives so i left them out of the dish, and just sprinkled them on top of mine. I also added a few of cloves of garlic, and I would probably season it a little more next time. Obviously no salt is needed with the feta and olives, but probably some black pepper, maybe some greek seasoning. Definitely a keeper!"
