Spinach Artichoke Dip

To die for, I'm telling you! So good!

The original recipe came from a Pampered Chef mini-book. I've changed a few things, to reduce the fat and calories. Here are the ingredients:

~10 oz. frozen cut spinach, thawed and drained (you can do this in the microwave)
~2 6oz. jars of marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
~1/2 cup Miracle Whip Light salad dressing (original recipe is mayonnaise)
~1/2 cup light sour cream (original recipe is regular sour cream)
~3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (NOT the powdered stuff in a can!!)
~2 tsp. minced garlic (the kind in a jar, soooo much easier than peeling and chopping cloves of garlic, which is what the original recipe called for)

All the ingredients. Yep, I live in a small town, Walmart shopping is the thing.

Chopped spinach, heated in the microwave and drained. This is also a Tupperware bowl - a microwave colander that fits inside the microwave bowls. Very handy for nuking veggies like spinach that need to be drained.

All the raw ingredients.

Everything mixed together.

I cooked this in my Tupperware microwave Stack Cooker (love this set!) for 5:30 until the cheese was melted and bubbly. You can also bake it in an 8x8 baking dish at 375 for 20 to 25 min. Serve with crackers or crusty bread slices.
