Remove outside lower leaves and cut off stems from artichokes. Mix together bread crumbs, pesto and pepper. Set aside. Wash artichokes. Spread open leaves and place mixture in between leaves and over top of artichokes. Place artichokes upright in a 10 inch skillet containing 2 cups water. Sprinkle artichokes with olive oil. Cover and cook about 30 minutes or until artichoke leaves are tender. To eat artichokes, pull out leaves one by one.

Yield: Serves 4.
