  5. Add artichoke/garlic mixture.
  6. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with remaining ½ cup of Asiago.

Good Golly Gerty what a great dip. I want to spread it on bread, put it on baked potatoes....the list goes on. I must confess I used 4 cloves of smashed garlic. Thanks again Meany!

Wow - this is one rich dip! I couldn't find 8 oz. jars of artichoke hearts, so I had to use two 6 oz. jars instead. I also upped the garlic, using 2 large cloves and used romano cheese. This makes a thick, dense dip (and it makes a LOT).
