Artichoke Gratinata

This weekend I went to a restaurant that had the most fabulous roasted artichokes in their salad. I wanted to do something similar, and since I love all that is breadcrumb'd (I made that word up) I decided to pan roast and oven roast the artichoke. It is extremely easy to make and takes no time at all, so it's the perfect dish to make if you have guests.

artichoke hearts (you can use jarred, frozen, canned) I used 2 (12oz) jars
1/2c chicken broth
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2c bread crumbs
1/3c freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2T butter
chopped fresh parsley
dash of kosher salt
couple grinds fresh pepper
dash red pepper flakes
olive oil to coat pan

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a medium sized skillet, add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for about a minute. Add the artichoke hearts, parsley, red pepper flakes, s&p and cook until the artichoke hearts are starting to brown at the edges. Add the chicken broth and lower the heat to simmer, about 3 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish.

Melt the butter in the same skillet. In a small bowl mix the melted butter with the breadcrumbs and spread mixture on top of the artichokes. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake about 10 minutes. The end result is golden brown and it smells delectable.
