Extraordinary!! I got this from Food Network in order to use up some frozen artichokes. If you want to be authentic to Giada, then use 1/3 cup mascarpone cheese instead of neufchatel. I used the less-fat cream cheese to lower the fat a bit and because it's cheaper. There is also an issue of leftover strings from the artichokes. It did not bother me, but you may want to strain before serving.
