Torta di carciofi – Artichoke pie

January 7, 2010 by Anna / Tags: , , / 0 Comments

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.


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!
