    Thanks for linking this to My Meatless Mondays. I am not sure if I like artichokes and have been thinking about trying them out. This sounds like there are enough flavors present to blend in, just in case, I am not in love with them. I adore spinach.

    @Chaya- I’m not a huge fan of artichokes by themselves but I enjoy them in dishes like these, expecially with spinach because it does help cover some of its flavor.

    Is that horrible of me to be saying something negative about an ingredient in my own recipe??? 🙂
