Italian recipe: Torta di carciofi – Artichoke pie

By January 7, 2010 No Comments

One of my favorite recipe, to be eaten also the day after. A very simple italian recipe!

Ingredients for 6 people

For pastry

500 gr flour,
40 gr olive oil,
1 glass of water,
3 teaspoon of salt,

For stuffing the pie

12 artichokes,
100 gr of grated parmesan,
1 onion,
5 eggs,
300 gr ricotta,
some parsley,
some marjoram.

Preparations

Prepare the pastry by mixing flour, olive oil, water and the salt. The result is soft dough; let it rest for 1 hour.

Prepare the artichokes by removing the outer leaves, cutting the stems and the thorns. Secondly, cut the artichokes into thin slices and place them, for a few minutes, in some water with a lemon (cut the lemon into 4 parts).

Meanwhile make brown slowly 1 onion, some parsley and marjoram. Then, add the artichokes, some salt and cook everything in a covered pan.

When all is cooked add eggs, parmesan, a pinch of marjoram, salt and ricotta. Mix everything with a spoon.
Roll out the dough and with a rolling pin make 4 puff pastry. Place on a baking pan 2 pastry and then pour the artichokes mixture uniformly.

Finally cover the pie with the other 2 pastry and brush with 1 egg yolk.

Cook for about 45 minutes at 200 degrees.

Enjoy and let me know how it turns out!
