Great game day (healthy - wink) recipe - I like that you can make in advance and bake the day of your party.

This is a very good version of spinach/artichoke dip. Very fresh tasting, and I like that it used fresh spinach instead of frozen. I used marinated artichoke hearts and liked the flavor it added.
