Baked Artichokes with Persillade Crust Recipe

Baked artichokes with persillade crust is a great appetizer. It's light, healthy and flavorful. First, the artichokes are boiled, then covered with a lemon parsley bread mixture and roasted in the oven until golden brown.

I made the persillade crust using stale brioche. It gives the crust a subtle sweetness. I also added a little brown sugar and honey Dijon mustard to reinforce the sweetness, as well as to balance the distinct, slightly bitter taste of artichoke. Lemon and parsley tie all the flavors together. I served the breaded artichokes with a bowl of homemade blue-cheese ranch salad dressing on the side. It's a delicious way to welcome the arrival of Spring!

Artichoke and Spinach Manicotti Pasta Recipe

I stuffed my manicotti with artichoke and spinach, and served the dish gratin-style with a layer of mozzarella cheese over the top and a bed of marinara sauce beneath. The artichoke and spinach mixture evokes the flavors of a dip, which contrasts nicely with the brightness of the marinara.

This is one of my favorite pasta dishes because it's very easy to make, while at the same time having great presentation value. Manicotti have the added benefit of freezing extremely well, so I always make them in large batches.
