This pasta is simple to throw together, yet soooo delicious. Use regular pasta instead of wholewheat, if desired.

Lots of “mmmm-ing” going on at the supper table tonight. This may be simple to prepare, with simple ingredients, but it is a spectacular pasta dish. I followed the recipe for the most part, but adjusted the amounts of a few ingredients, cutting back fairly significantly on the crushed red pepper flakes (to about 1/8 tsp.), the artichoke hearts (about half the amount called for), and the lemon juice (again, about half the directed amount). Delicately flavored with a beautiful and elegant presentation. I served this with grilled chicken, but this could easily stand on its own. (Note: If your pasta is dry it is easily remedied by adding some of the reserved pasta cooking water)-25 Sep 2011
This was very good, the only thing i found was that the final sauce was just a little to thin, so i put everything back in the pot and boiled, stirring constantly to reduce the sauce and make it thicker. My kids loved it so much that i have no left overs, and it makes a lot. thanks for the great recipe-12 Jun 2008
Wow! This was simple to prepare, yet so delicious you would think it took me awhile to make. I made just a few mods - left out the Parmesan and added some lemon pepper seasoning to the final product - oh and I added a bit of butter to my sauteed shrimp for a bit more flavor. I think really small mods - but this dish was a hit and a certain keeper!!! Thanks Rentsch!-21 Jul 2010
