I played with this side dish til I had all the elements I like. You could even toss in linguine and chicken and have a complete entree.

This is a difficult one to rate. I didn't follow the recipe exactly because it just didn't sound very exciting. However, the three stars come with what happened with the artichokes. They definitely did not get soft in 4 minutes of boiling water (and I know it was boiling). They also turned brown and stayed brown. I tried the suggestion with tossing it with linguine and chicken. That made a nice dish. The parmeasn (or romano because that is what I had in the freezer) gave it a nice flavor. Nice dish except for the very, very firm artichokes!
