I loooove spinach and I have made the same old spinach casserole for years and years! So this was a welcome change from the norm. I did add about 3/4 cup of swiss cheese to this, because we are crazy for cheese! This went well with mashed potatoes, garlic bread and italian meatloaf for dinner! I will make this again and again! With a few changes this would make a lovely spread for slices of toasted French bread as well! Thanks for posting! [Made for Holiday Tag October 2009]

- 16 ounces artichoke hearts, drained, squeezed dry and chopped (optional)
