I created this appetizer about 10 years ago. The combination of herbs and cheese seemed like a natural pairing. The addition of artichokes just took this over the top as a wonderful sensation. —Nancy Ringer, Wichita, Kansas

  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted

Fold in artichokes and red pepper. Pour into springform pan. Place pan in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
