Classic Delicious Artichokes
Catherine Cappiello Pappas
- 4 artichokes
- 5 cloves garlic – chopped fine
- ½ cup grated parmesan cheese or romano cheese
- ½ cup italian parsley – chopped fine
- ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
- 2 cups italian style bread crumbs
- 3 – 4 tablespoons olive oil
Drain and let the artichokes cool. When the artichokes are cooled pound them on the counter to open them up; then snip the tips of the leaves and the stems off.
Combine the cheese, garlic, bread crumbs, red pepper flakes and parsley in a bowl. Stuff the leaves of the artichokes and place in a baking dish; drizzle the tops with olive oil.
Preheat Oven 350 degrees:
Bake the artichokes 30-35 minutes. Let cool a bit and serve.
