Ready In:
About 40 minutes
About 3 cups; 12 servings


  • 1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, or 1 13.75 oz. can water packed artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup reduced-fat or regular Mayonnaise
  • 1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese

  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika

Squeeze spinach to remove liquid. With a mixer, beat spinach, mayonnaise, cream cheese, onion, garlic, 1 cup of the parmesan cheese, and pepper until thoroughly combined.
Mound mixture in a 3- to 4-cup baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with 2 tbsp. parmesan cheese and paprika.
Bake in a 350° oven until hot in center and lightly browned on top, 25 to 30 minutes.
Serve hot to spread on baguette slices.
