Parmesan Baked Artichokes

I had high hopes for these parmesan baked artichokes that I made for our latest girl's dinner. The pictures on How Sweet It Is were enticing and I envisioned a gooey cheesy side dish. Unfortunately, my version didn't turn out quite as gooey or cheesy. These were still good--anything with artichokes usually is--but my parmesan instead got crunchy. Boo. I think I'll try these again with fresh parmesan (which is what the original recipe called for. Fail on my part) and hope they turn out as I expected.

Parmesan Baked Artichokes
from How Sweet It Is

-1 (14 oz) can artichokes in water, drained
-1/4 cup break crumbs
-1/4 parmesan cheese
-1 tbsp olive oil
-1 tbsp italian seasoning
-1/4 tsp sea salt
-1 tsp garlic powder
-1 oz. freshly shaved parmesan

1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Layer artichokes in a baking dish. Drizzle olive oil on top. Season with salt, garlic powder, and italian seasoning.
3. Add bread crumbs and 1/4 parmesan on top. Bake for 15 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and top with shaved parmesan and broil for 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.
