How easy can it get? Canned artichokes, pre-shredded cheese, mayo, you can even get pre-minced garlic, some fresh parsley if possible, but dried will work. You do need to slice 1 onion, but mix and bake. It is a wonderful side dish that takes 5-10 minutes to put together and just bake. And in 30 minutes while you make the rest of dinner, your side dish is done. I serve this all the time with grilled steak, pork chops, or fish, anything you like.
