This sounds like a wonderful light and healthy pasta. I think you did a great job giving it a no dairy dressing. I glad you shared the recipe with us. :)

Nice combination.. Delicious looking pasta salad. Looks so colorful with the rotinis. I have a artichoke recipe on my blog if you are interested. I use the canned one, but try to soak it in water for longer period to take out that vinegar taste.
I have never cooked with artichokes but have eaten in dips.It always seems interesting to add new things in your past. i liked your blog and following you..
