I had such high hopes for this recipe, and had been waiting for a special occasion to make it...So, had my family over and made this dish for 8 of us (adjusted recipe to increase quantities). Despite the fact that I made a mess of my kitchen and dirtied many pots and pans making this, it fell short in satisfying my family. Four people after tasting, refused to eat another bite, and I thought it was way too rich (too much butter) and not complex. The bacon does help balance out the tartness of the lemon, artichokes and capers, but it REALLY needs Onion and/or garlic! That was the resounding call around the table. All around, everyone was suggesting "it might be better if..." So, thanks anyway, but I won't bother making this again. The timing for the recipe is way off as well...it took me an hour of prep and cooking (just crisping the bacon alone took about 15 minutes). Bottom line, it was way too much work and mess for a dish that no one even liked! I had to toss all the leftovers as no one would eat it, and we hate wasting food!
