So easy but oh so good!! I didn't have diced tomatoes, so I used tomato sauce and some fresh chopped tomatoes that I added right at the end ... thanks for a great recipe!!

Well, I really wanted to love this because it looked so simple to prepare- however, I ended up adding so many other ingredients that I totally changed the recipe. Perhaps using marinated artichokes would have helped??? I ended up adding: crushed red pepper flakes, oregano, kalamata olives, a pinch of sugar and a few tbsp of balsamic vinegar. End result, pretty darn delicious. Thank you for getting me there!

This was very tasty. Really easy too. I quartered the recipe since it was just my husband and me, but I used a full 16-oz can of quartered artichoke hearts and a full 16-oz can of diced tomatoes. We love plenty of sauce on our pasta and the increased amounts totally fit the bill.
