Artichokes With Butter

(Carciofi al burro)

Wash, dry and cut out the top of the leaves of as many artichokes as are

needed. Cut them in two or four and boil them in salt water. When

tender, drain them, have them slightly browned in melted butter and

season with salt and pepper.

When served in a vegetable dish or placed in a pyramid on a round plate,

sprinkle with grated cheese.
