Very tasty!! I didn't have the artichoke hearts, so I left them out. I used fresh spinach, (cooked in a little water for 2 minutes), and added 1/2 t oregano. This is just chock full of veggies and has a great taste. I served it over regular spaghetti. Enjoyable meal with a loaf of garlic bread. I will make it again. Thanks Kari!!

Oh man this is good! My hubby and I love it. He's not a big fan of artichokes but he liked them in here. I only cooked it about 8 minutes total rather than 12-14 as suggested, because I feared the veggies would get mushy. I also substitued dried basil (1/2 as much) since I didn't have fresh. The best part? It was fantastic as a leftover! It heated up great the next day and was just as tasty as fresh. This is going to be one of our stand-by nightly dinner recipes.
