Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 jars (6 oz. each) marinated artichokes, drained

8 green onions, chopped, with green

16 ounces ricotta cheese

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

4 eggs, slightly beaten

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon dry leaf tarragon, crumbled

1-1/2 teaspoon dry leaf oregano, crumbled

1/4 teaspoon dry leaf thyme, crumbled

1/8 teaspoon dry leaf sage, crumbled

1/4 teaspoon pepper

6 sheets phyllo dough

1/4 cup melted butter


Coarsely chop the artichokes; combine in a bowl with chopped green onion, ricotta, parmesan, and Monterey Jack cheeses, sour cream, eggs, flour, tarragon, oregano, thyme, and pepper. Blend well.

Brush butter on a layer of phyllo dough and place in a 9-inch springform pan, letting it drape up and over sides. Repeat with 2 more sheets of phyllo. (Keep phyllo covered with a damp cloth while not working with it to keep it from drying out.) Add cheese mixture to the pan. Trim phyllo dough; allow the top edge to extend about 1-1/2 inches above the filling. Fold dough over filling and place trimmed scraps on top.

Brush another sheet of phyllo with butter. Fold in half (butter side in) and lay on top of the filling, shaping to fit pan and folding the edges underneath. Brush with more butter. Repeat with the remaining 2 sheets of phyllo.

Bake artichoke tart at 400ºF for 20 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and bake 35 minutes longer.
