    Literary Mom's Note:

    A luscious sauce with a Mediterranean flair. When creating this, I used Smart Balance (for butter), whole milk, and served it with Trader Joe's alphabet pasta.

      I rounded this up from 3.5 stars because of the creative use of contest ingredients to make a lower fat creamy pasta. I used Smart Balance as well, and more milk and pepper toward the end. We would have loved more sundried tomatoes in this. Fresh garlic and spinach would also be nice enhancements. Good luck in the contest!

      3 stars. I had to double the amount of milk in the beginning as the flour, milk, cream cheese mixture was the consistency of a dough. I also was a little confused in the directions when it said to add "frozen" spinach. No where previously did I see where it said to thaw the spinach so I put it in frozen, I thought perhaps the added liquid was what was supposed to thin out the sauce. This did not work for me however, because it was taking too long to defrost in the skillet while the other ingredients were beginning to break down. So I took it out and defrosted it in the microwave and then added it back to the sauce. As the directions stated, I added even more additional milk to get more of a sauce. I really did enjoy this dish but just wish the directions had been a little more clear.

      3 Stars--The end result was a very tasty dish; however, the directions are not clear. The recipe was reduced to serve 2. I used quite a bit more milk than the recipe called for, close to twice as much. The artichoke hearts were drained and the frozen spinach defrosted before adding to the pan. I don't generally use garlic powder so I did add a couple of cloves garlic to the butter. Also, this really should be cooked on lower heat instead of medium. I do think a pinch of cayenne pepper would really add to this dish. Good luck in RSC #11.
