"Fresh looking and tasting, but a little bland. I put sliced Italian Sausage on it though, and that was excellent."

"Absolutely fabulous!! The only change I made was that I used a large can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced. I didn't have them on hand. I also used grated Parmesan instead of shredded. Will most definitely make again."

"This recipe was GREAT! I also used grated Parmesan cheese and it tasted fine. Even my husband (who thinks any meal without meat can't be considered dinner) loved this! Thanks for a great Meatless Monday recipe!"

"I forgot to mention in my first review that I always use grated parmesan instead of shredded. It's cheaper and melts into the meal."

"This recipe is excellent! My 7 year old daughter who doesn't like olives clears her plate. And my husband who is a meat eater through and through loves this recipe! It doesn't reheat well so I cut the recipe in half and usually double the artichokes (2 jars in half the recipe) because the artichokes make it a little meatier."

"Delicious, amazing, easy, and fast! Even my husband who doesn't like artichokes, loved this recipe. I was looking for an easy pasta recipe that was outside of what I typically make. This was perfect--adding it to my regularly used recipe collection!"

"My family loved it! Except for using grated parmesan instead of shredded (only because I had no shredded on hand), I made the recipe as written and it was awesome. Can't wait to try it with the shredded parmesan. Very flavorful--especially for a recipe that is so quick and easy. Will definitely be one of our family's regulars!"
