Remove from the heat and dry them, then very carefully cut them in half.
Preheat oven to 200°C - 400°F. Lightly grease a small baking pan. Pour the artichokes into the baking pan. Cover with the shredded provolone cheese, sprinkle with ground black paper and red paprika. Pour in the preheated oven and bake until the cheese melts.

Pour the artichokes into a serving dishes and serve with the white ricotta sauce and some fresh parsley.
