    Loved this! It was a big hit with the family! I did omit the mushrooms and red pepper some people in the family can't have them. I will definitely make again. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

    Our congregation LOVES this! Omit the mushrooms & red pepper. Increase to two blocks cream cheese and cook in crockpot. Mmmmm... fantastic!

    I made this for a pot luck dinner among friends and it was hit! Better than found at any restaurant. I now make a large batch and freeze it in smaller portions - Ready to defrost and take to any last minute get together! I serve it with tortilla chips.

    Best artichoke dip that I have ever had. Made this as is with no changes. My husband likes this better than any that we have had at restaurants. Keeper. Thank you for the recipe.

    I followed the receipt with these few changes. I used canned spinach that worked really well. I hand grated the Parmigiana cheese, omitted the sweet red pepper since it already seemed to have enough flavors and I thought that it would be just too much. It turned out so well that we ended up having it (with freshly baked bread) for our dinner.

    25g of Fat in 1/4 of a cup is a bit high. You can lighten this up without sacrificing much flavor. Sub in light mayo, light cream cheese, reduced fat parmesan and you can cut it almost in half!!
