    Made this as an appetizer for Valentines dinner. It was delicious. My husband and father inlaw loved it. Wouldn't change a thing.

    For a 13 y.o.'s afternoon birthday BBQ, I needed something to serve the adults. I made a variety of Crostini topped with this artichoke-parmesan recipe as well as eggplant and olive tapenades. Colorfully arranged on large platters, they were safe to serve in the summer heat. Everyone loved them - not a single slice was left over.

    I prefer to pulse the artichoke in a food processor, quickly with the oil , parmesan.parsley and seasonings. Then top with additional parmesan. Much better texture.

    Would adding a little olive oil do the trick?

    I was worried about them being too dry as well, but my guests love them. They're a nice easy addition when everything else I'm serving is loaded with mayo and sour cream.

    As writen, it's rather dry although has beautiful flavor. Needs an addition of sour cream or mayonnaise to moisten and hold for serving.
