    @Enormus the recipe that u posted was terrible and a waste of money. FYI 1/2 or lemon juice? No way that over powered the dish and made it taste sour. Also adding all the ingredients to the saute pan in which u cooked the shrimp is a bad idea because now the shrimp are way over cooked! Duh? Add the shrimp at the last minute or saute them in a seperate pan and then add to the dish. Also to those that want to add the pine nuts remember Macaroni Grill's are toasted. So take a couple of moments and put them under the broiler, adds a nice touch. Enormus u suck dude!

    Alas, I live more than 100 miles from the nearest Macaroni Grill. Hence, I was delighted to discover this copycat recipe of one of my MG favorites. It was a hit even with my finicky son. I also added some pine nuts. Perhaps a little high on the fat scale, but worth an occassional indulgence.

    I just made this for dinner. Shrimp Portifino is the only dish I order at Macaroni Grill. My family did not like it. I would not use mariinated artichoke hearts, ( I questioned this to myself before buying them. Wished I'd followed my gut)they overpowered the dish and they were drained first. It needs something to make it a little saucy, and I did add pine nuts to it like the real thing. I don't think lemon juice is in it either, at least not as much. As excited as I was to find this recipe, I was dissapointed that it wasn't closer to the exact dish. Sorry.

    One of my favorites when we eat at Macaroni Grill. I used fresh arugula in place of the artichokes and served with angel hair pasta. I also added toasted pine nuts. The fresh lemon juice makes the dish! Thanks for posting
