Light recipe and something else to do with fresh artichokes besides stuff them.

My artichokes took a little over 2 hours before the flesh removed easily from the leaves. They looked gorgeous and were very flavorful. I served with some garlic butter with a bit of the drippings from my skillet added. This recipe didn't deliver as much flavor as I thought it would, but it could have been my artichokes....who knows? Overall, a nice recipe. Thanks for sharing.
