    heather in Ont,'s Note:

    This is a gourmet pasta dish that taste like it came from a fancy restaurant. It's loaded with lots of flavor and easy to make. If your chicken broth isn't low sodium, you might want to omit the olives, otherwise the dish will taste salty with the feta cheese, olives and chicken broth. I used fresh penne noodles that can be bought at the supermarket. It helps cut down on cooking time. I had never eaten artichokes before and was pleasantly surprised. The entire family loved this dish. I found the recipe in the Fine Cooking magazine.

      We love artichokes and this recipe too. We subbed the chicken broth with vegetable broth and used a vegetarian brand of bacon. That cut down on the fat content quite a bit. The feta cheese we used (low fat) didn't really melt, but that didn't matter much. Thanks:D
