Something fancy for a dinner party you can try this dish.  I’d never tried artichokes before and enjoyed the taste especially the combination of them with olives and beans.

This is a very simple recipe but looks great if you are having guests around.  We’ve done this with our Pan-Seared Chicken Dish.
