    very yummy! didn't get 4 servings, unless it was supposed to be a side item. also, i'm not a fan of the whole dish being the same color, so i added some chopped fresh parsley. the flavors were good & it was super easy! i will be making this again.  -  12 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good flavor but my can beans never got crisp. In fact, they turned to mush as I expected they would. Canned beans hold too much moisture and are already too soft to pull any kind of "crisp" off. Like I said, the flavor is good but I think the only way to pull this off successfully is to cook up some dried beans beforehand, under cook them a bit, and let them drain really really well before you ever begin. I saw some complaints about the marinated artichokes but this is what I used and I have no complaints there at all.  -  24 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It is surprisingly very good! I didn't think the flavors would blend well, but they did. Only problem was that the garlic burned (maybe I had the oil too hot), but otherwise very good and very filling. Even my husband liked it and he'd never had artichokes before!  -  02 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
