Asparagus and Artichoke Pasta Salad
January 21, 2009

My family loved the dressing - I thought it was perfect. We will definitely be keeping this recipe. I doubled all the ingredients EXCEPT the dressing. I also replaced the asparagus with fresh spinach because I didn't have fresh asparagus on hand. I mixed all the ingredients (except the pasta and balsamic dressing) and squeezed half of a fresh lemon over it & tossed (instead of 2 teaspoons of juice) Then I mixed the balsamic dressing with just the pasta, really so I could see if it was as bad as people thought. It was fine so I then mixed the pasta with the rest of the ingredients. I thought the cranberries added the perfect amount of sweetness to the dish. The flavor combination was right on for us, we loved it!!! but if your not doubling the ingredients I would recommend not using as much dressing as it calls for it may be too overpowering.
