- 3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan

How to make Paccheri stuffed with artichokes
We begin the preparation by washing and cutting into slices the artichoke hearts, remove the external leaves and the internal beard, put the artichoke hearts in a pan with a little water (less than half a glass) and a drizzle of oil; cover the pan with the lid and let it cook for 10-15 minutes. Remove the lid and let the water evaporate in the pan for a few minutes, add a little more oil and a clove of garlic and fry for a few minutes, add salt and turn off the heat. Put the artichokes in a small bowl and blend them with the immersion blender. You will thus obtain the artichoke cream.
Add the artichoke cream ricotta cheese and the Parmesan grated, season with salt is pepper.
prepare the bechamel (click here) multiplying the doses by 1 liter of milk and add a little nutmeg
cook the paccheri (I used the artisan paccheri from Campania Schioppi purchased online here) in plenty of salted water and drain 3 minutes before the time indicated on the package (they will continue cooking in the oven). Arrange the paccheri standing up in an ovenproof dish and stuff them with the artichoke cream (I used the pastry syringe) inside each single pacchero put a piece of provolone and a strip of speck.
Pour the béchamel over the stuffed paccheri and finally add a little grated Parmesan on the surface. Bake at 180 degrees for 20 minutes, until the golden browning is formed. And here are your P'smaples stuffed with artichokes. Enjoy your meal!
