Spinach Artichoke dip is one of my guilty pleasures – can you really go wrong with a bunch of cheese?! No you cannot. One of my favorite spinach artichoke dips is from Applebee’s. But this Budget Savvy Diva does not have the money to stroll to the nearest Applebee’s and enjoy this amazing appetizer. So I decided to make my own copy cat recipe. I tried a ton of recipes the best I found was from food.com – I did change the amount of  mozzarella cheese and pepper + I changed how I put the dish together.

First gather all your ingredients ;)

  • (10 ounce) box or bag frozen chopped spinach
  • 14 ounces artichoke hearts , drained and roughly chopped
  • 1  cup shredded parmesan-romano cheese mix
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 10 ounces alfredo sauce – I just buy the canned stuff ;)
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 4 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 tsp pepper

What to Do

- Set the oven to 350 ;)

- I like to mix all the cheeses together ( I call it the glue). I mix these alone so I know they are well mixed together – no one wants to take a bite of dip and get a mouth full of cream cheese ( well maybe you do ;)  )  So I take a bowl and place the 1/2 of mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, alfredo sauce, parmesan-romano. Should look like this

- Now Mix Mix Mix!

- Place spinach, artichoke, pepper, and garlic in the bowl and mix :)

( This is starting to look good ;) )
Now place the mixture in a 8×8 pan – I greased my pan with a little oil.
Then I took the rest of the mozzarella cheese and sprinkled over the top.
Now it is time to bake !!!
I like to wait till it browns completely on top – takes about 30 minutes.
Wait 5 minutes and enjoy
