Spinach and Artichoke dip

I wish I would have gotten a picture, but we devoured it before I could even think about it!

I found this recipe a few years ago and it has been sitting in my recipe box since.  I decided to try it one day and it was a hit!  So I made it again for Christmas at my in-laws.  Just thought I would share the recipe.  It is claimed to taste like Applebee's dip, but I think it has a different flavor.

1- 10oz box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1- 14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
1 cup shredded Parmesan-Romano cheese mix (or whatever Italian mix you can buy in your grocery store)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
10 oz jar prepared Alfredo Sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 oz softened cream cheese
pepper (optional)

Preheat oven at 350. Combine ingredients in a bowl and spread the mixture in a small baking dish.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until cheeses are bubbling and melted.    Enjoy!
*I've found the smaller the dish, the thicker the layer of dip, the less it cooks through.  An 8x8 is suggested.

I will be sharing a few other recipes I didn't get a chance to take pictures of later.

I hope you are enjoying the AWESOME weather we are having for January.  Too bad I'm not at home "sick" on this beautiful day!
