This is excellent! So much be better than the recipes that use the frozen spinach. I doubled the recipe and didn't quite double the spinach. I tore up some of the leaves and left others whole and honestly don't know if it made a difference. I also added some half and half at the beginning to help speed up the melting of the cheeses, most especially the cream cheese. And I think using the marinated artichokes (I used three small jars) made a tremendous difference to the flavor. It turned out amazing! Honestly, you will fall in love with this recipe!
Very good and super easy. I made this for an office potluck and had to do it last minute at the office and it turned out great. I did make 2 very small changes. First, I subbed a blend of mozzarella, smoked provolone and Parmesan for the mozzarella and Parmesan just for convenience. I also stirred in a couple of teaspoons of hot sauce at the end, not for heat but for some acid/ flavor contrast. This was definitely a keeper!
Very delicious. I cut back on the spinach, only put in about 10 ounces and chopped up the leaves before mixing into the dip. Thanks Erin K. Brown for a fabulous dip. Made for Fall 2011 PAC.
