    My family loved this recipe. I used Rotini pasta and frozen artichokes, both still worked and tasted great!

    My daughter and I made this and we used reduced fat cream cheese. It was very good and easy. We'll definitely make this again!

    Loved this one, I'm always trying to find new ways to use artichokes. I love them. I always use the fresh whenever possible. I love to deep fry the fronds and eat them like chips.

    Could this be made with skim milk and fat free cream cheese? Just wondering if it would change the sauce consistency or not.

    I had completely forgotten about this recipe and we loved it before. I have everything on hand except I have a little jar of artichokes which I'll rinse off to use. Almost everything in this recipe is either low sodium or can easily be substituted. I can't wait!
