This was some good stuff - nice recipe KeriLee! So nice to see a vegetable side dish with some real creativity and imagination. I preferred to use fresh spinach and garlic, some pepper and, because the artichokes I used were quite small, I left them whole.I did not cook this for 15 minutes though - just a minute or two to wilt the spinach is all it takes. Great flavor and great eye appeal too.

This turned out to be a heavier side than I was expecting. The prosciutto plus oil, plus marinated artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers made for a very heavy fat/oil taste. Otherwise, the flavor was very good. If I make this again I'll cut back on oil. Another possibility would be to use frozen artichoke hearts (not marinated in oil) and roast your own red peppers. It does make for a very colorful salad, it looked very nice.

It was very good. I used more roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts than in the recipe, since I couldn't find jars the exact same size as specified in the recipe. I put everything into a casserole dish, put feta cheese on top and baked it for a short while to heat the cheese. It was very good this way. I would suggest using a salty ham instead of prosciutto since you cook it anyway and prosciutto is more expensive.

Husband loved this. I cooked the first time with sauteing the prosciutto to crisp it up and added fresh garlic while I did this. Next time I want to use fresh spinach! Thanks for the great idea!

This was a very nice side dish. Very colorful and tasty. I followed the recipe exactly. I think with a little heat, cayenne, or pepper flakes it could make this a 5 star dish. Thanks for posting the recipe

This was very delicious. Did not add the artichokes, but was very good. Thanks for sharing.

Incredible! I made this for 10 of my family members and it was the first thing to go. The taste is great! I may have added a few more artichokes (just because I love them), other than that, it was perfect!
