If it's a stuffed artichoke, it must be Christmas! I remember the traditional holiday menu called for stuffed artichokes. Preparation was an ordeal so, as Momma grew in years and wisdom, she came up with this alternative. (it's easier to eat too) Between you and me, it tastes even better when it rests, so don't be afraid to assemble it ahead of time. It's a great vegetable casserole on its own; a vegetarian's delight. Easy to do and a real crowd pleaser ... enjoy!
