Spinach Artichoke Dip

Holy cow! THANK YOU Hungry girl!!!!!!!! This recipe rocks.

What you need....
one 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
One 14-ounce jar artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
One 8-ounce container fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup reduced-fat parmasean-style grated topping
3 Light laughing cow cheese wedges (garlic flavor)
3 Tablespoons minced green onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make it...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees if serving dip hot.

In large bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, laughing cow cheese, and parmasean cheese, until mixed well. Add salt and stir.

In a sprayed pan, cook green onions and garlic cloves over medium heat on the stove until soft, 1-2 mins.

Add spinach, artichoke hearts, and garlic-onion mixture to the large bowl and stir well.

If serving dip cold, grab some Low fat Wheat Thins and veggies and ENJOY!!!

If serving it hot, transfer to a casserole dish, and bake for 30 minutes until bubbly.

**This is different from the original which can be found in This book. The original uses shallots instead of green onions, cayenne pepper, fat-free mayo instead of laughing cow cheese, and adds water chestnuts.

Bre made this for a family party and everyone, including her "selective eater" husband, LOVED it. So try it!
