"Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty—and I am not talking about the process of cleaning the rooms of your teenage children." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

1 Lemon
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh Parsley
1/2 Cup (2 oz.) shredded Mozzarella
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Garlic clove, minced
Additional grated fresh Parmesan cheeese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush one side of won top wrappers with vegetable oil with a pastry brush. Press wrappers into mini muffin pan. Bake 6 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven, leave in pan.

Meanwhile, coarsely chop artichokes, put in large bowl. Remove seeds from pepper and chop. Grate parmesan; zest lemon. Finely chop parsley. Add pepper, parmesan, lemon zest, parsley, mozzarela, mayo, and garlic to the artichokes.

Fill won tons wtih mixture. Sprinkle with more parmesan. Bake 8 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan, serve immediately!
