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.

About 1 1/3 cups | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place artichoke hearts in the center of a clean kitchen towel; gather up the ends and twist firmly to extract all the moisture.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
