Artichokes Unpacetta #vegetarian

One of the dishes we got on our trip to Leitchfield was Artichokes Pancetta, but I didn’t have any pancetta when I made mine, so mine was vegetarian by default.

Pancetta, in case you don’t know, is a pork product kinda-sorta like bacon, but not really. Later, I found out that the Jay C in our little neck of the woods does have it, but I didn’t know that so I didn’t buy any.

I did buy a small jar of marinated artichoke hearts, which I drained and chopped into big chunks and spread in the bottom of two small dishes. Topped that with a whackin’ great hunk of Italian mix cheeses (Romano, Parmesan, and Asiago) and some fresh parsley and rosemary and (because I didn’t have any fresh) dried oregano.

I baked it in our toaster oven at 350 for about 15 minutes, until the cheese melted and started to toast.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Your character bakes something in a toaster oven. It needn’t be food.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I think I could eat old leaves with enough cheese on them. Just saying.
