Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

My mom has an awesome website called Recipe Barn that I love going to when I need to cook something amazing.  For the New Year's Eve party I went to - I just knew I wanted to bring her Hot Artichoke and Spinach dip!  As I hoped for, everyone loved it!  It goes great with any kind of chips - but I'm sure you could use bread as well.  Below is the recipe and pictures:

4 cloves garlic
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 (10 ounce) container Alfredo-style pasta sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 ounces of cream cheese, softened

Spinach and garlic (yes, I forgot to mash my garlic up and had to do it messily later)

Sliced up artichoke hearts

1. Preheat oven to 350. Place garlic in a small baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 20 to 30 minutes, until soft. Remove from heat. When cool enough to touch, squeeze softened garlic from skins and mash it up.

2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.

All of the ingredients - pre mixing of course


3. Pour/spread the ingredients into an 8x8 baking dish.


4. Cover and bake for 30 minutes, or until cheeses are melted and bubbly.  (I uncovered it at the end so it would get a little brown on top)

5. Serve warm.

Let me know if you decide to try this recipe out and if you like it!

Okay, this made my day. Honestly. My MIL made a very similar dip over the holidays, and I've been bemoaning the fact that I forgot to write down the recipe. Thanks, girl!

That's one of my favorite things to eat! But I don't think I've ever made it before. I'll have to try. :)

Mmmmm! I've never tried making this dip myself but I've had it elsewhere with bread and have always really liked it. I might just have to give this a shot!
