While I was trying to figure out what recipe to make for Wednesday’s Weekly food post, I got a package in the mail. In it were 3 jars from Fratelli Mantova: artichoke paste, olive paste, and pesto Genovese. First, let me tell you that I just mixed a teaspoon of each with some pasta and it was so yummy!!
For the first recipe from the trio, I decided to make Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip.
1 1/2 tsp. butter
about a pound of fresh spinach
1 clove garlic, minced
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise or sour cream (or plain yogurt)
1 (6.5 oz) jar of artichoke paste
2/3 cup shredded four cheese mix
Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic and spinach, cook until spinach is soft. If you haven’t seen it before – here is how amazing spinach is:
Add cream cheese and mayonnaise and cook till creamy.
Eat in moderation as the calorie count is pretty high on this one!!
I was not compensated in any way for this post. I purchased the products that I am recommending.
