      This was very good. I followed the recipe as written except that I used canned artichokes, whole wheat pasta and added half-and-half to make a more creamy sauce. Everyone loved this except my very picky 8 year-old-son. He just couldn't wrap his little head around bacon in spaghetti. I will definitely be making this I was told I have to by my husband. Thank you for another great recipe Chef Jean. Made for the Greek cookbook for team Tasty Testers during ZWT9.

      Delicious! I did use fresh baby artichokes and it took them a l-o-n-g time to get tender. And I used applewood smoked bacon (YUM!) and used linguine rather than spaghetti. Unfortunately, the eggs and parmesan didn't combine to be creamy...probably I had the heat too high. It is a scrumptious dish, creamy or not!

      A very good blend of flavors! I used a 12 ounce bag of frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and coursely chopped as well as leftover cooked bacon I had on hand. I added the chopped bacon with the artichokes in step 3. It came together very quickly on a week night. So easy and tasty; I'll be making it again. Thanks for posting Chef Jean!
