I found this recipe on the same site I found the Herbed Cheese recipe which is posted below. Since it was written for an InstaPot, which I don't have, I changed a few things and cooked it as a casserole. If you have an InstaPot the whole process would be much easier and take less time. I forgot to add the artichokes when I made it, so I made that optional on the recipe since we thought it was excellent without. (I plan to try adding them the next time I make this and see whether it is a good addition.)
If you are like me, you welcome suggestions of good recipes to help you get out of the rut of cooking the same thing all the time. I think you will like this.
