Meal Swap - Chicken Artichoke Heart Pasta

Monday night was the monthly meal swap. I have made this dish, Baked Artichoke Pasta, before and posted about it here. I usually add chicken and DH suggested I rechristen it with a less boring title. He suggests "Chicken Artichasta!" I think it's a little too weird. Any suggestions from you readers about what to call it? Ingredients are listed below the photo.

There were a few variations this time, because the cost of ingredients changed and I made a lot more.

Here's the cost breakdown:
6#ish chicken = $11.00 ish
2 costco jars artichoke hearts = $17.18
9ish cups parmesan = $5.45
1 1/2 cups pine nuts = $4.00 ish
4 cups light mayo = $1.50
8t. garlic = $.30
bread crumbs = made from free bread

Total cost = $39.50/12 pans = about $3.30 per meal which works out to just about the same price as last time.

And these are the meals I received in the swap: White Chicken Chili, Ham/Bean Soup, Chicken Barley Soup, Creamy Chicken casserole, Chicken casserole with stuffing on top, Pulled Pork, America's Test Kitchen Meatloaf, & Ham Quiche.
