Artichoke Gratinata

This is a great side dish to accompany any cut of meat.  You must try this recipe if you're a fan of artichokes, which our entire family are huge fans.  This dish is super easy and not having to prepare and cook the artichokes was quite nice.  

This recipe was adapted from Giada De Laurentiis.

3 TBSP olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 lb frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
2 TBSP chopped fresh parsley leaves
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup Marsala wine (Marsala wine is wine made with both red and green grapes)
2 TBSP butter
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Warm the olive oil in a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the artichoke hearts, parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes and cook until the artichoke hearts are starting to brown at the edges, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and wine and simmer for 3 minutes. Transfer the artichoke mixture to a 2-quart baking dish.

Melt the butter in the same skillet used to cook the artichokes. In a small bowl mix the melted butter with the bread crumbs. Stir in the Parmesan and top the artichokes with the bread crumbs. Bake until the top is golden, about 10 minutes.
