Frozen artichoke hearts contain no added salt, unlike the canned variety, which may contain more than 300mg per half cup.
Serves 30 (serving size: 2 cups)
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add chopped spinach and artichokes, and sauté 5 minutes.
3. Place cream cheese, avocado, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 1 minute or until smooth. Add Gruyère cheese, 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, and spinach mixture, stirring well to combine. Spoon about 2 heaping teaspoons spinach mixture into each phyllo shell. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1 ounce Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until browned. Serve warm.
