O Solo Fantastico
Bless the Italians for their wonderful food. This recipe is to die for. The Italians like to serve vegetables " al forgo," which means baked in the oven. The artichokes are stuffed with a mixture of breadcrumbs, fresh mint, nuts and olive oil and then baked in a seasoned broth. I made this recipe twice and the first time I just devoured one after I finished taking my photos. Years ago, I found this recipe in an insert of a German magazine devoted to Italian cooking.
