i changed this recipe around a bit. i made bread crumbs from a hard left over loaf of bread from a local italian market. i also added some extra spices to the stuffing. the end result was unbeleivably good! :)you cant go wrong with stuffed artichokes! deliziosi!

Our family also mashes a few anchovies into the bread/cheese mixture for great flavor. We steam ours on a wire rack in a large covered pot on the stove until you can slip out a inner leaf. That's usually a little more than an hour cooking. Don't forget to dip some crusty bread in the broth that you just made, it's great!
