This makes a great summer dinner that only takes about 20 minutes to get on the table. If you have some fresh basil, mince up a few leaves and add that.

I'm going to try this sometime this weekend. Any idea how much pasta would be 1 pound?

*smarter question* How big is a large can of artichoke hearts? (We get artichoke hearts in huge jars at Costco)

I thought that would be after it's cooked. I even asked the guys at work and they thought it was funny that it was worded that way. I'll probably make it tomorrow.

I got a can that's about 12 oz and I'd say that's sufficient. Made it this morning, it's not too bad. Some of it will probably go to waste, made way more than I can eat.

I probably won't see anyone until tomorrow night. I could take it to work. I'm not sure how long it'll keep.

It does make a big batch. I use a 12 or 14 ounce can of artichokes. We serve it for dinner with fruit and a nice crusty bread and then we have enough leftovers the next day for lunch for me & the boys and my husband takes for lunch.



You could probably quarter the recipe, but the artichoke & beans would kind of be "leftovers".

I took the rest to my mom and sister, they loved it. There was a lot left and I told them it would only be good for another day or so, my sister said "It'll be gone by tomorrow."
