[rspec-users] Problems with RESTfully generated helpers

I just passed label_artist_path(@label.id, @artist.id) into the view
and it worked.. but I really don't want to have to pass those
parameters in all my views. It looks ugly. Does anyone know a way
around this without stubbing? It seems useless to test this view
without allowing those methods to act out their real behavior.

-TIA
