MY REVIEW

The bowl is empty after every event I've taken this to. I bake it in the oven though, not the microwave.

I didn't use the lowfat version of anything. This recipe was very green tasting, not overpowered by cheese. I would have liked a creamier taste.

I made this for a company carry in. I also put it in over at 375 for about 20 min. It was gobbled up quickly.

I made this for a family dinner party, and they dubbed it "boomerang dip" because you keep coming back for more. haha! It is really good. I will definitely make it again.

I love, love, love this recipe! It's delicious as an appetizer with pita chips and then as a toast topper the next morning.
