If you love artichoke dip, you are going to love this! I got this recipe from Myrecipes.com and made it the other night for my boyfriend and we both loved it.
Creamy Artichoke Dip
1/2 cup (4 oz.) block-style fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
3 tbsp. grated fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce (such as Tobasco)
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
2 (9 oz.) packages frozen artichoke hearts (about 2 cups), thawed and chopped – I used canned artichoke hearts and it worked just fine.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl; stir until well blended. Stir in artichoke hearts. Spoon artichoke mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until artichoke mixture is hot and begins to brown. Serve warm. Goes great with veggies or cut up pieces of french bread.
