Review:
4 stars. Great flavor. I added a can of mushrooms and we had diced roma tomatoes instead of sundried. I loved the artichokes! This reminded me of the artichoke mushroom chicken at Marie Callendars. I wish I would have left out the pasta and water and just served it over rice. It was very runny and rice would have soaked in the flavor better.

  2. We had this tonight. I opted to do rice instead of noodles, and while it did soak up the sauce some, I wish I had taken your suggestion about NOT adding the cup of water. It was way runny. But I really liked the flavor. (Also, it is St. Patrick's day so I added green food coloring to the alfredo sauce and the rice...it still tasted great despite my husband's dislike of the color!)
