Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip
This was phenomenal, way better than anything I've had in a restaurant.
I didn't add bacon (it just didn't seem to "fit" the recipe). To give the dip just a little crunchiness to it, I added a few heaping tablespoons of diced water chestnuts.
I used a previous reviewer's suggestion to do 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup shredded Italian blend cheese (the kind that has romano, mozzerella, etc). SUCH a good suggestion, it gave the dip just a touch of stringy cheese texture.
I used a small tub of Alouette Light Garlic and Herb cheese spread (you can find it in the little 'gourmet' refrigerated section of the deli in the grocery store), THIS really made the recipe great, I think. I also used Lite sour cream.
I served with toasted pieces of pita bread, DELICIOUS!!!! This is going to be my new party staple dish.
