It comes from the Sicilian town of Certa, famed for its artichoke, if you want to make artichokes as much as I do, this recipe is definitely for you. It’s also a great creaminess of ricotta.


1.Start with artichokes preparation. Fill the bowl and the lemon juice with cold waters–an acidity prevents the dying artichokes.
2.Cut the stem from one of the artichokes with a sharp knife, around 2 percent cm below the base and throw it away. Chop the rest of the stalk off and peel the knife until you hit the sweeter inner middle, place it in the bowl then.
3.Begin to pull, split, and discard the leaves until the white and thinner leaves are reached. Cut off the top part of the artichoke, and then cut away any scruffy parts. You're left with a pale foundation. Cut the rest of the artichokes halfway and transfer to the bowl.
4.When done, open each artichoke as a bass, take a teaspoon and discard out the fluffy heart, then return to the bath. When you are done,
5.Cook the sedanini until they're al dente in a big pot of boiling salted water.
6.In the meantime, cut the artichoke thoroughly and elice the shallots thoroughly. In a large pot, put the shallots in 2 table cubes of oil and sweat over medium - high hundred for 2 minutes or until tender. Add the chili and artichoke chips, fry for another 2 to 3 minutes, then add to the hot stock and mix until tender.
7.Add ricotta and pepper to taste and bake, whisking sometimes, until creamy. Remove the sedanini and add some to the sauce by holding the cooking water.
8.Throw well through the heat until it's gorgeous and shiny, loosening the cooking water if necessary.
9.Grate the Parmesan finely, cut them thinly and add most of the pepper leaves. Spring salt and pepper to taste. Serve with Parmesan grating and parsley leaves reserved.
