I thought it was pretty plain when I first tried it (seen in the photo below), but I think that’s because all of the artichoke had settled at the bottom. It surprised the heck out of me when I poured some more out onto leftover pasta for lunch and saw artichoke chunks fall into the bowl. I thought it had gone bad at first! It’s a pretty tasty alfredo sauce, although I prefer the Roasted Red Pepper version. Just make sure you shake the jar first!
