My first thought when looking at the ingredients was, Wow, that is a lot of bread crumbs so, I reduced the bread crumbs to 1.5 cups and it still was too much. The lemony flavor was a nice compliment to the artichokes, but it was way to dry and crumbly. Also, the "add our" in step #2 should say, "add flour".

Needs some editing - recipe says "our"; I think it should say to 'add in the 2 teaspoons of all -purpose flour - very important, the sauce will not thicken.
