Everyone must go make this for dinner as soon as possible. Not kidding. It was REALLY good and my family gobbled it up. I was worried they wouldn't like the artichokes but I chopped them up into smallish pieces so it wasn't even an issue. Things I did differently: used the whole container of feta, used bow-tie pasta instead of penne, used a whole stick of butter instead of 3 T., sprinkled hot pepper flakes on my serving(spicey nicey!), and we all sprinkled pecarino romano cheese on our servings. Best parts: fast and easy & no meat!
