The name says it all easy! However it is a little bland. To kick it up a notch I have added little more parmesan cheese artichokes and marinade. I have also added black olives and sun-dried tomatoes in oil The oil which soaks up the flavor of the sun-dried tomatoes really add flavor to the salad. Couple tablespoons will do the trick.

This was pretty easy to make but i added a few things to make it more flavorful... i used way more parmesean than the recipe calls for and i sliced some black and green olives too... i also added some zesty garlic italian dressing but found that i liked adding it just before serving the dish... pretty good!

This is excellent! I've been in search of a good tasting easy pasta salad and this is it. I especially loved the artichoke hearts so I doubled the required recipe. I also spiced it up a little bit by adding a couple of tablespoons of good Italian dressing. This kept it from being dry. This salad will definitely be in my party menu. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Easy and delicious recipe (my husband loved it!) It's easy to adjust to your liking - I added a lot more artichoke marinade and a bit more parmesan cheese. Very nice. Read More

This salad really is super easy and a little different than your regular mediterranean-style pasta side. I've never liked the marinade from the artichoke jar so I make my own dressing with white-wine vinegar olive oil lemon juice garlic thyme and pepper. This also makes a delightfully festive holiday dish with the red peppers green broccoli and whitish artichokes. Particularly cute if you can get (at Target or Fred Meyer type stores) red green and white pasta in tree or other holiday shapes. I did that for my office Christmas buffet and everyone loved it!

The recipe was quick and easy as advertised. It was a very colorful addition to the meal. However we found it very bland in spite of adding extra marinade from the artichokes some fresh herbs and also some Italian dressing. Read More

Good but I agree with other reviewers who thought it was bland. I made it as is (except used rotini because I didn't have penne) tried it then added a pinch of red pepper flakes some italian dressing and some pepperoni slices. I liked it better with those additions. Read More
