      I prepared this for a gathering of friends, what a beautifully rich pasta dish! My cousin, a chef and vegetarian, took the recipe home with her, and I'm quite sure the youngsters who cheerfully filled their plates with this dish had no idea they were getting a good helping of veggies as well! I found it full of flavour, rich and creamy and very pleasing. Easily prepared, a winner! Thanks so much, Sharon! Made for PRMR tag game.

      This was an absolutely delightful dish. The artichoke hearts really flavored the sauce quite well. I didn't realize until I started cooking that I was out of pimiento. So I had to leave out pimiento, but it didn't seem to matter. Because all in all, it was a delightful dish. I think I will probably add a little more garlic next time, but that is all I would do to adjust this recipe to suit our taste buds. Made for Hidden Gems. And this truly was a gem for us. Thanks, Sharon.
