Globe artichokes, nature's most intriguing pull-apart delicacy, pair well with robust Italian flavors. Serving the artichokes with a zesty pecorino Romano vinaigrette and toasty slivers of garlic is a lighter alternative to stuffing them with breadcrumbs.
Antipasto means "before the meal," and this antipasto recipe doesn't disappoint. Serve up this antipasto of cured meats, fresh cheeses, and herbs that will satisfy guests until the next course is ready.
The meaty artichoke hearts provide a nice balance to the light and creamy ricotta cheese. Take premade dough out of the fridge a few hours before you plan on using it to let it rise.
