Spinach Artichoke Dip

The last of the spinach has been picked and I’m sorry to see it go.  Spinach is something I don’t get tired of eating, especially when it’s turned into one of my favorite dips.fresh spinach

First, I assembled the ingredients to get started.ingredients spinach artichoke dip

I steamed a bag of washed spinach and then drained it.  Next, I diced the artichokes, chopped the spinach,  and then mixed it along with the other ingredients.  (If your container of artichokes is larger than 14 ounces, you need to use about 10 artichoke hearts). I put it all in an oven-safe dish.

Next, I topped it with grated parmigiano reggiano and baked it for about 30 minutes until the dip was bubbly and heated through. I think I topped it with about 1/2 cup of cheese, but you can use more or less to your taste.  Serve with tortilla chips and watch it disappear!
