This was excellent, even though I messed up by overcooking the whole wheat linquine a bit. It does have a rather mild but pleasant flavor. The only thing I might recommend is trying it with some herbs, maybe thyme? I cut back significantly on the oil and butter, and used vegetable broth instead of chicken (we're vegetarians). I only used 2 cans of artichokes (couldn't find frozen either) and served it with only 6 ounces of pasta. Okay, there was some leftover sauce which I really enjoyed eating cold the next day:)

Loved it! I used 3 cans of artichoke hearts packed in water (roughly chopped), plus a little semi-sweet white wine. This was even better the next day reheated. I'm sure this would have been even more delish had I used the frozen artichokes, but my local little store didn't have any. A keeper for sure, Thanks!

I made this for christmas for my bf and he tried to eat the whole thing he loved it so much! I added chicken to it and he said that it really helped improve the already delicious taste.

I added in capers and black olives as we really like them. It was a great addition! Very good!

Delicious!!! I changed the recipe a bit by adding 8 cloves of garlic, still a mild garlic taste. We have fresh artichoke, so after harvesting, I boiled then cleaned the artichoke for use, which took the most time. I just used one flower, it worked out well. A rather easy recipe, and quick too!

I only did steps 2-5 and put this heavenly sauce over cheese tortellini. Absolutely divine. My husband, aka Mr. Picky Pants, didn't care for it, but who cares. I devoured mine AND his.

The sauce tasted so good before adding the parmesan that I decided to skip the cheese. I used 4 garlic cloves and crumbled some leftover bacon on top to entice hubby to try. I'll be making this again!

A couple of things I did different was to use canned in water artichokes and to add the garlic, which I chopped quite fine, into the butter and olive oil right away. I also didn't add the extra butter, oil and cheese at the end. I also put just enough hot pasta into a large bowl for 4 light servings, added the sauce to the bowl, tossed, then added a little more pasta as was needed to get a good sauce to pasta ratio to make sure the sauce would be adequate for the amount of pasta and reserved the remaining unsauced pasta for another use later. Next time I think I would put three cups of the artichokes in because I really like artichokes.

As DD said, this is AWESOME! :) My family loved this pasta, and I loved it not only because of the yummy flavor, but also because it was so quick and easy. Followed the directions except we used marinated artichoke hearts cut up and I added a dash of oregeno. Thanks Engrossed! Made for ZWT4 - Los Jefes de la Cocina!
