Ok I admit on cheated on making this recipe. I used a can of Artichoke bottoms (not marinaded) and cut this recipe to almost a 4th. I then prepared the rest of the ingredients and filled the bottoms which makes a very pretty presentation. I loved the addition of the tarragon it gave it a very interesting flavor. I will definitely be making these again! Super recipe Oz. Thanks!
