Huge win! I dumped my hot pasta over everything else and the cheese got a little melty – oh yum!

Sherri says:

We made 4 servings of this instead of 8. Such an easy recipe to put together. We didn’t need much red onion. I always get a little fearful of artichoke hearts, but they were delicious in this. All my store had was big organic tomatoes and a chunk of some organic mozzarella. They worked great though I think the cherry tomatoes would have been sweeter – the mozzarella was perfection. Next time we will definitely try the salami addition, can definitely picture that in there.

Melissa says:

Even though I love all of these flavors, and am obsessed with Caprese salad. I didn’t love this the night we had it for dinner. I think the flavors were just a little too strong. I think it would have been better without the onions…. The next day, I warmed it up in the microwave for a minute, and it was amazing
As for the rest of the family, my husband liked it, but the kids ( 1 and 5) did not.

Monica says:

Added a can of cannellini beans–extra fiber and protein. EVERYONE loved it.

Jill says:

My family does not eat artichoke hearts. Instead, I served it with chopped, thick-sliced fresh salami from the deli for them and “veggie pepperoni” for me. It was a big hit!

Great vegetarian option. The marinated artichokes make the dish.

Jeannene says:

Can I just say YUM! Love this and nice to have a cool salad for hot summer nights. I also left out the onion because I was out.

The adults loved it. The children only liked the bow tie pasta with no dressing.

Amy says:

Delicious! A big hit with everyone (ages 9, 12, and 37). I forgot to add the onions, but otherwise followed the recipe.
