Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until onions are light golden but not browned. Remove from heat and cool.

In the bowl of a food processor combine artichoke hearts, spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, Neufchatel, mozzarella and salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Add cooled onion-garlic mixture to the food processor and pulse a few times to combine.

Transfer mixture into an 8-inch glass square baking dish or 9-inch glass pie plate which has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with pita wedges or crudites.

    Super tasty! I chopped the artichokes by hand and mixed them in at the end along with the spinach so the dip would be chunkier. I also used greek yogurt instead of sour cream and everyone loved it. Also great as a spread, not just a dip!

    This dip was amazing and the best part was that it didn't taste "low fat!" It had all the bold flavors, yet light. Instead of using a baking dish, I put the dip in a bread bowl and put the whole thing in the oven for 20 minutes. The result was a crusty, crunchy bread that complimented the warm dip nicely! I also substituted 5 Mexican cheese blend for the mozzarella. Everyone at my Superbowl party loved it and many took the recipe home! DE-LISH!
