Prosciutto Stuffed Artichokes

These overly-generous stuffed artichokes make for a delectable dinner party appetizer, and are hearty enough on their own for a light lunch with a small group. The intensely savory stuffing makes for a lovely contrast with the herbaceous leaves, and the whole thing is delicious down to the last bite – scrape the dipping bowl clean with the tender heart for a perfect ending to a Spring lunch.
