4 Stars=Loved it! Thanks for a quick, yet sophisticated tasty meal. I used 16oz bowtie pasta, doubled the artichokes & chicken. halved-3/4 the onion. Didn't have the olives (but hubby hates 'em anyway). My kids liked it well enough; they thought the pasta and chicken were tasty, although it was harder for them to "choke" down the marinated artichokes and other superfluous vegetables; they did really enjoy the flavors those things imparted onto the pasta. I wondered if the oil from the artichokes would be too much, but it was just fine-not too much at all. We will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!
