This is just delicious. What a great recipe. I did add about 1/4 cup of chopped onion and sauteed that with the garlic before adding to the other ingredients. I also needed to add a little more mayo and sour cream to make it a little creamier. I used light sour cream and light mayo and it worked out perfect. This will be enjoyed tonight at our family Christmas gathering. Thanks for sharing.
Personally, i found the recipe a bit bland and added more garlic and some salt to it while it was baking, which did the trick. I also added more mayo to the dip as I thought it wasn't creamy enough. I also used 2% shredded cheese, low fat sour cream and light mayo. You don't notice the lower fat versions at all in this dish. Very good starting point though and will definitely make again.
This is definitely a lighter variation of the recipe I normally use. The grocery I purchased the ingredients from did not have frozen spinach or regular artichoke hearts. I had to buy marinated artichokes...and I rinsed them before mixing in. I also used canned spinach instead of frozen. Both ingredient worked out okay, but I would not use marinated artichokes in the future if I can avoid it...they overpower the dish a bit. Made for PAC 2009
I just found this recipe here; I've been making it for years. My printout says it is the copycat of TGIF's recipe, if you know that chain. The only thing I do differently is to cook it longer; more like a half an hour. I absolutely love this stuff! I've had no problem using lowfat ingredients, and the bagged shredded mozzarella. Thank you for posting! Edited to add: I hadn't made this for a while when I reviewed it. Just made it for the Superbowl, and I'd add that I cook it in a pyrex casserole dish with the lid on, and I use the water packed artichokes. I gently squeeze most of the water out of them before I chop them. Thanks again!
I served this with crab at a get-together. It disappeared right away, and everyone asked for the recipe.
Tasty! Made it for Grey Cup (Canadian version of the Super Bowl) and it was gone in no time. I took cooked it longer, about half an hour. Great recipe!
