Random Recipe Exchange

I love partaking in Pam's Random Recipe Exchange. So here it goes, here is one of my favorite appetizers!

Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip

1 (8 oz.) pkg Cream Cheese
1 can (14 oz.) Artichoke Hearts, drained, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup Spinach frozen chopped, or steamed
1/4 cup Mayonnaise (do not use Miracle Whip)
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup Romano Cheese (You can use all Parmesan)
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon dried BasilOR1 tablespoon Basil Fresh
1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese grated
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Toasted Bread or Tortilla Chips

Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature. Cream together mayonnaise, Parmesan, Romano cheese, garlic, basil, and garlic salt. Mix well. Add the artichoke hearts and spinach (careful to drain this well), and mix until blended. Store in a container until you are ready to use.
Spray pie pan with Pam, pour in dip, and top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the top is browned. Serve with toasted
bread or tortilla chips.
