If you’ve ever had this dip in a restaurant, you’ll remember the ooey gooey deliciousness. Recreate it in your own home any time you like…and it’s perfect for that Game Day spread or any other get together!
To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine 1/3 c mayonnaise, 1/2 c parmesan cheese, 1 clove of minced garlic and some fresh ground black pepper.
Add in 8 ounces of Neufchatel cheese (or regular cream cheese) room temperature. Mix it all together.
Rinse and squeeze dry a cup of shredded spinach, fresh or frozen.
Add it to the bowl.
Then grab a small jar (about 6.5 oz) of artichoke hearts that are marinated in olive oil. Drain the oil and then give them a rough chop.
Toss that in the bowl as well, and then shred some mozzarella cheese. About a cup.
Toss half of it in the bowl and stir everything together.
Spread the mixture into a small baking dish that has been lightly oiled or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Top it with the remaining cheese.
Pop it into your oven and bake it for 15-20 minutes, or until everything is gooey and bubbly and is beginning to get golden around the edges. Let it cool 5 minutes, and then enjoy it with bread, crackers, chips, or whatever your heart desires.
