Spinach and artichoke dip

Yesterday was Little Guy #2's christening, and you know what that means? A party afterwards that requires WAY too much eating. This spinach and artichoke dip is so yummy as an easy little appetizer with chips and celery.

You'll need:

4 cups chopped baby spinach
1 brick (8 oz) cream cheese
1/4 cup mayo
4 tbsp. parmesan cheese
1/4 cup milk
3 cloves chopped garlic
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1 can (14 oz) chopped artichoke hearts, drained

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 large ramekins (or whatever you plan to use as a serving dish) with Pam.

Put spinach and 1/4 cup water in casserole dish and microwave, covered, on high for 2 minutes. Drain well and blot excess water with paper towels.

Beat cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in mayo, 3 tbsp of cheese, milk, garlic and basil until well blended. Stir in spinach and artichokes. Spread evenly into serving dish(es) and sprinkle with remaing cheese.

Bake 20-25 minutes and enjoy!

Try it at your next party. Trust me, you'll love it.
