Noni's Italian Stuffed ArtichokesSubmitted by: JONESEYJR55
IntroductionWe used to love the spring when the artichokes came in. This is a whole meal in itself. The kids used to fight over the 'heart'. Even the stem is tasty!

1 medium fresh artichoke
(look for one with no rust and tight leaves)
1/2 cup dry grated bread crumbs
(leftover bread was never wasted)
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1 clove garlic chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
(I keep olive oil in a spray bottle to control the portions. Extra virgin olive oil is best for this recipie becase you want the rich olive flavor.)
Mix dry bread crumbs, chopped parsley and chopped garlic clove. Open the leaves as much as possible and sprinkle the bread crumb mixture into the cavities. Place in a cooking pot along with the stem. A pressure cooker works very well for this.
Add water to approximately 1/2 of the artichoke high. Drizzle or spray extra virgin olive oil over the top to moisten. Salt and Pepper to taste. A little dash will do. Cover pot and let boil for approx. 45-60 minutes. Do not let the pot get dry. Check every now and then. Artichoke is done when leaves come off real easy and the meat is super tender. Enjoy!
