Carciofi Ripieni Alla Salsiccia, also known as Stuffed Artichokes with Sausage, is a delicious Italian appetizer. This recipe calls for fresh artichokes, sausage, pancetta, lemons, garlic, onion, dry white wine, parsley, olive oil, salt, and pepper. The artichokes are cleaned and soaked in acidulated water with lemon juice to keep them fresh. Then, a filling is prepared with pancetta, garlic, parsley, onion, chopped artichoke stems, and crumbled sausage. The artichokes are stuffed with the filling and arranged in a baking dish. Olive oil and white wine are added, and they are baked in a preheated oven at 180°C for about an hour, basting occasionally with the sauce from the stuffed artichokes.
