Artichoke Casserole

Artichoke Casserole You may notice this casserole is very mildly seasoned. This is so that the mild flavors of the artichokes come through. This is a lovely dish that can be assembled ahead of time, refrigerated, and then brought out for baking close to dinner time. Because of the cheese and milk, this dish is substantial enough as a main course, or can be serve as a side dish.
