Savory pie Artichokes, ricotta and speck: savory pies are always a good idea for a quick preparation using what is in the fridge, perfect for a spring picnic, for Easter Monday and there is the possibility to put in whatever we prefer. You can use the puff pastry as in this case or the shortcrust pastry.

Ingredients for a 22-24 cm cake pan

  • 5 artichokes
  • 450 grams of ricotta
  • 150 gr of cheese (Asiago or scamorza)
  • 2 tablespoons of grated Grana
  • 3 slices of speck
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper


Clean the artichokes: first of all we put on gloves or rub our hands with a lemon to prevent them from blackening when handling the artichokes.

We remove the hardest outer leaves, cut the outermost part of the stem so as to leave only the tender part. We cut the tips of the leaves of the artichokes that are generally harder and sometimes even have thorns. First cut the artichoke in half, remove the internal “beard” with a teaspoon, then cut the artichokes into slices and put them in water and lemon (to prevent them from blackening).

Drain and rinse the artichoke slices and put them in a pan with a little oil and half a glass of water, cook covered for 15 minutes.

While the artichokes cool, prepare the cream by placing the ricotta, egg, salt, pepper and grated Grana in a small bowl. We mix and add the speck cut into strips and the artichokes, leaving some aside.

L'garlic is a bulbous cultivated plant, and belongs to the family of Liliaceae.
