 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           Raw sm shaped pasta
      3/4  pound         Marinated artichoke hearts
      3/4  cup           Firmly packed alfalfa sprout
    1      sm            Green pepper finely chop
    1      md            Carrot -- coarsely chopped
      1/2  cup           Sliced/chopped black olives
      1/4  cup           Red wine vinegar -- more/less
      1/2  teaspoon      Dried basil
      1/2  teaspoon      Dried summer savory
 
 Cook the pasta al dente, then rinse it with cool water.  Drain the pasta well and
put it in a mixing bowl.
 
   Chop the artichokes into bite-sized pieces and add them to the pasta.  Add the
 alfalfa sprouts, separating the strands as much as possible with a fork, and the
 remaining ingredients.  Mix well and allow to stand for 1 to 2 hours either at
 room temperature or refrigerated before serving.
 
   Variation: To serve as a main dish salad, garnish with hard-boiled eggs or add
 some diced mozzarella cheese.
