Pasta Salad with Artichokes and Feta

This salad is very unique and tasty. The feta cheese and artichoke hearts give  nice sharp bite to the pasta. It is a great addition to any get together. The recipe comes from my sweet friend Katherine. She does not have a sharp bite, or harsh word to say about anyone. She’s a sweet gal raising some beautiful kids. And I mean beautiful!

    Hi Jaimee,
    I am so glad you added this recipe to your blog. I loved it at the shower. I have what may be a stupid question for you. I have never used artichokes before in a recipe. So when you say “marinated artichokes hearts” what exactly is the “marinated part” refer to? I assumed you were using fresh artichokes but the marinated thing made me wonder if there is a canned version you use instead. If it is a fresh artichoke–about how many artichokes does it take to get 1 1/2 c.?
    Thanks Jaimee!!

    You do buy marinated artichoke hearts in a jar. Costco sales a big jar for about $7. They taste great! but you can also purchase them in a smaller jar at any grocery store. When I made it I just used one little 7.5 oz jar. It still tasted good, but I would suggest using two small jars instead of one. Hope this helps! Have a Happy Easter Heidi!
