Couldn't be easier, perfect for a super quick supper

This was alright as a quick and easy dinner yesterday, but really good as a cold pasta salad for lunch today. In future, I think I will make it specifically to keep overnight and then have cold the next day. I added some green asparagus tips that needed to go, which worked very nicely.

I left out the rocket as I hadn't got any but i didn't seem to do much harm. Very tasty and will make again.

Very disappointed with this recipe as I thought it would be a great store cupboard stand-by. It turned out to be overly lemon-y (almost like lemon curd) and all the other ingredients were lost. Will not be doing again.

Served this to my husband, who said "But I don't like artichokes". Then proceeded to eat the whole thing and asked for more. Absolutely delicious and one of those recipes you could serve at a summer dinner party. Looks and tastes impressive and easy as pie.
