Artichokes With Prosciutto and Cream

This is a recipe from the Los Angeles Times by Russ Parsons. I saw this while flipping through the Food section at the airport and It caught my eye because my husband absolutely loves artichoke dip and I thought I might try something a little different. This is definitely fancier, but very good.

Love these. Think I prefer to place the sauce in a bowl to dip in.

I made these for PAC spring 2007 and they were great!! I think next time I will cook them a little slower hoping they will be more tender. The flavor was just great though. Thanks again Reed for letting me make this dish for PAC. Barbara
