Recipe Roundup: Dips

Recipe Roundup @ Multi-Tasking MomsWith the holiday season in full swing, we'll all be spending more time with friends and family. Dips are a great way to entertain a small group, or a large crowd without having to stretch the budget too far, or spending too much time in the kitchen.

Here is a great dip recipe that my family really enjoys. And, every time I serve this one to guests, I get asked for the recipe.

Artichoke and Spinach Dip
recipe slightly adapted from

4 cloves garlic
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 (16 ounce) container Alfredo-style pasta sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place garlic in a small baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 20 to 30 minutes, until soft. Remove from heat. When cool enough to touch, squeeze softened garlic from skins.

In a medium bowl, combine the roasted garlic, spinach, artichoke hearts, Alfredo-style pasta sauce, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and cream cheese. Spoon into 8 x 8 inch (or similar sized) baking dish.

Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for additional 10 minutes, or until bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or cubed Italian bread.

Now it's your turn. Share a favorite dip recipe with us by linking below, or leave one in the comments section!
