We liked this recipe and thought it was easy to prepare. The only change we made was to reduce the crushed red pepper flakes. Thanks for posting.

If I could give six stars I would! I've cooked it twice in the past two weeks, and both times it was phenomenal! The only changes I would make would be to use a little less pasta and more veggies. I tried to use three fourths of a 12 oz. box of angel hair, but next time I'll only use half. And the second time I made it I did add two cups of red and green peppers to the mix. Next time I'll use the peppers but not the artichoke hearts because the flavors clashed somewhat. I would probably substitute chicken broth for the liquid in the artichoke can. I also second the reduction of the red pepper flakes. With that, the seasoning was perfect!

Okay, maybe this wasn't the original version of the recipe (not that I would've known, since I've never even heard of the show it came from), but I certainly didn't think it was horrendous! My only change was to reduce the crushed red pepper to 1 teaspoon, because the full 2 tablespoons might have killed me lol! In fact, DH ate half of the pan for dinner all by himself! He said that the taste reminded him a teensy bit of Bertucci's Shrimp Rossini, which he adores. I only had a little tester forkful of this before I left for work and really liked it, but I knew I'd like this because it contains some of my favorite ingredients. Give yourself a pat on the back, sweetie, since your version of this recipe officially passed DH's "eating half a pan 'cuz it's that good vs. eating enough to constitute a meal because I'm starving" test lol.
