Anginares à la polita is a dish originating from Constantinople, in Greek Constantinoupolis, also called “Polis” meaning the city of Constantine. Therefore this dish means “artichokes city-style”.
This artichoke lasagna is a fabulous dish made with fresh artichokes, layered with bolognaise sauce and topped with luscious Greek bechamel sauce.
Artichokes are native to the Mediterranean and appear during spring. They are a variety of a species of thistle cultivated as a food.
