    Oh goodness … I’ve never actually had an artichoke before and have no idea what it tastes like. But I imagine it would be good in a vegetable lasagna.

  21. Mimi0000044 says:

    Roasted Artichoke Hearts & Garbanzo Beans……the fastest  way is with frozen hearts and canned garbanzos… rinse them both and pat dry…. mix EVOO and  garlic ….spread on a sheet pan in a very hot oven and  roast until they start to  brown.   Fresh is even better but it takes much longer.  YUM

    I often get fresh artichokes, cook them and eat the whole thing with a little lemon butter. But if it’s a dish you want, then it would be spinach, artichoke dip. Or a chicken artichoke pizza with white sauce.

    Question – Are the artichokes in this recipe the kind you can buy in the freezer section of the grocery store?  Or, are these artichokes you cleaned and cooked?

    I like artichokes, but I LOVE the hearts.  My favorite way to eat the hearts is in fresh pasta with a little olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and a twist of lemon.  Simple but totally delicious.
