This update of a holiday entertaining classic delivers all of the rich flavor with far less of the usual fat. Serve with pita crisps or toasted slices of French bread.

ingredients

  • One 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the artichoke hearts in the center of a clean kitchen towel; gather up the ends and twist firmly to extract all the moisture.

Combine the artichokes, 1 cup Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, lemon zest and cayenne pepper in a food processor. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Season with salt and black pepper.

Spread the mixture in an even layer in a small ovenproof gratin dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and bake until the top is golden, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
