Very good. Very easy to put together if someone drops in.(You can always defrost the spinach in the microwave) The only thing I did was add one fresh squeezed lemon. I served it with tortilla "scoops". Thanks again for the great recipe!

thanks tgirl for posting this recipe for me. It was the winner in my private dip-off. the twins loved it and licked the bowl clean. not even a taste for me so i guess i will have to make it again. they nuked it and gobbled it down with tortilla chips. said it was better than the restaurant.

This DOES taste just like TGIFs! Had friends over to watch movies and this was so good to sit around and munch on. Easy to prepare (I just love it when you can "throw" ingredients together). I only had "shredded" mozzarella on hand so that's what I used. A wonderful tasting dip. Thanks so much.

If you are in a rush, I suppose this isn't bad...but I prefer Todd Wilbur's clone. Marinated artichokes along with shredded Parmesan and shredded Romano cheese instead of Mozzarella make a much better dip that will walk out of the bowl without much assistance.

This was excellent! It was very creamy and had lots of flavor. I ended up using less artichoke hearts as I could not find the bigger size and used the shredded mozzaralla instead of cubed. Next time, I think I will add just another teaspoon of garlic just for an added burst of flavor, but it was definitely excellent as is. Thanks for the recipe.

I followed the recipe to a 'T' and found that the spinich and artichokes were a little overwhelming. I doubled the sour cream, mayo, parmeasan, and mozzerella to 1 cup. It is less 'green' this way and my 8 year old will eat it. Thanks

LOVED IT! I blanched fresh spinach and used lower fat ingredients so I could feel somewhat good about this rich and creamy appetizer. I kept it warm in a mini crock pot and served it with tortilla chips for a holiday party. YUMMY!

very close to TGIF's and very good! I had alot left over, so I put the remaining dip into a muffin tin and froze it, so I can pop an individual serving into the microwave anytime. It freezes great and tastes twice as good after reheating!

BoxO'Whine made me try this. We loved it and my DH doesn't like artichokes! I have never eaten TGIF's, but if theirs is anything like this one it must be good.

Yum! I used cream cheese over the mozzarella and added 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Then I microwaved it for 3 minutes, took a taste, then another, then put it in the mini crock pot for my DH's lunch. He will be thrilled! Super easy to make, easier to eat! Thanks for posting!!
