Recipe by Kumquat the Cat's friend
Can't believe it, but there's no other recipe like this on Recipezaar (unless I somehow missed it). These babies are so, so good. I roasted canned artichoke hearts in connection with another recipe I invented, and was so pleased with the way they came out even without the topping, so I'm posting a plain(er) version. If you want the topped version, go to recipe no. 144997. I found that roasting them enhanced the taste and texture - made them more tender on the inside:D One of these "throw it in the oven and ignore while you are fixing other parts of dinner" recipes!

Very good but rather plain, as the recipe states. Great side dish for something very flavorful. I would suggest using the frozen artichoke hearts as they don't have that tinny taste from being in a can. I used about double the garlic, Kosher salt and plenty of freshly cracked black pepper. Next time I will grate some Parmesan over. Thanks!
