i LOVED this! i also used fat free 1/2 & 1/2 and it was still very creamy. i put chicken in mine too but think it would be just as tasty without it although i will definitely add more mushrooms next time. i also put in more artichokes than the recipe called for - and i didn't get the marinated ones instead the ones packed in water. they worked great! (i added a little bit of their water to the sauce)

I used milk instead of half and half. I think that was a mistake. Not as good as it should have been I"m sure.

I did not care for the artichokes. I didn't like the tangy taste. I have taken this basic recipe and came up with a great new recipe.one.

After reading the reviews I decided to add a few things to this to make it a little more flavorful. First I added about 1/2 cup of sundried tomatoes and a bit more artichokes than it called for. Then I added some cut up chicken breast (2 pieces) - which I sauteed in garlic and olive oil. I used fresh thyme instead of dried and used about 1 tablespoon instead of what the recipe called for. I also tried using both portobello and shitake mushrooms - but the shitake were far better. Lastly instead of adding the parmesan when the dish was finished and on the plate I added a slice of goat cheese to the top. It's really rich and creamy melts slightly into the pasta and is soooooo good.

We really loved this. I did use capellini rather than linguini (my hubby's preference) and I didn't have half and half so used heavy cream instead (!). My chicken broth was my homemade broth using the carcass of Roast Sticky Chicken from this site so it had all that added flavor (but that's mostly what I use--never the canned stuff). Otherwise I followed the recipe. My hubby wants this again tomorrow. No problem with that! There are only the two of us and this makes a lot! But it was really delicious!

Really quick and delicious. I used skim milk and cornstarch to cut down on the fat and it was still great!

i wish i could give this one six stars! it was so delicious and quick & easy to make. didnt have half and half so used regular cream which while tasted great was probably a little too rich. and next time i'd probably want to add some sundried tomatoes for color.

I enjoyed this recipe with a few minor changes. I took the advice of cayanne pepper and sun dried tomatos to spice it up and for the cheese I used a pre-shredded mix of parm/romano/asiago. I think I might even try adding some broccoli to this.

I LOVED this recipe. I used 4 cubes of very concentrated frozen homemade chicken broth instead of canned. I also cubed chicken and sauteed it in lemon juice and seasoning salt. I almost left out the artichoke marinade fearing it would make it too thin but I'm so glad I did not. The sauce is a bit thin even with the lesser quantity of chicken broth but the flavor is fabulous and I don't mind at all! This is one of the best recipes I have tried off this site!
