This was a super tasty recipe as written. Once I make a recipe the way it is written, I try to healthy it up as much as possible. Here is what I did to this recipe and it still tasted fantastic. I used vegenaise (or Hellmann's olive oil mayo) I only used 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese and then substituted 1 and 1/4 cup shredded Soy-Sation mozzarella style for the rest of the parmesan. (A lot fewer calories, no sat or trans fat, no cholesterol, and way less sodium) Then I finished the rest of the spread according to directions. I spread a real light layer of this mix onto the bread (just enough to help the spinach stick) and then stuck raw spinach leaves onto the bread. I coated the spinach leaves with the rest of the cheese mixture. I topped the bread with sliced cherry tomatoes and chopped black olives and baked as directed with the exception of broiling for the last few minutes. This was so yummy. Thank you for the idea.

My family and I LOVED the recipe, but I did change the bread. I found a round loaf of sourdough bread, and cut it through the middle horizontally. I then hollowed each half our a little and put the artichoke mixture in the hollowed out halves. Once I cooked them a little to make the mixture melt, I let them completely cool and then cut them into wedges and cooked them again. Otherwise, if they were hot they were too hard to cut. Thanks for the recipe!

I made this for my husband's fantasy football draft party and the guys loved it! Took some to a Labor day cookout as well, and it disappeared! It was so easy to make! The only thing I changed was instead of adding the 2 cups grated parm., I used a parm/mozz mixture you can buy in 2 cup bags at the store....it worked great!

YUMMY - The only change I made was to use monterary jack cheese and to slice the bread instead of half.

Everyone always loves when I make this. It's not exactly low fat, but it is delicious. I usually use an italian blend of cheese instead of the parmesan. It comes out great!

SO GOOD and RICH! I put the topping on some fresh sliced rosemary bread and browned it under the broiler, for just a few minutes (towards the end of the 20 minute cooking time) YUM! But for the 2 of us there is a lot left over...I hope it's still good in the microwave tomorrow!
