  • 9 oz. frozen chopped spinach - thawed
  • 14 oz. can or jar artichoke hearts (not marinated)
  • 6 oz. cream cheese - softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt I use Lawry's brand
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped pistachios


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Thaw and drain the frozen spinach. Be sure to squeeze ALL of the liquid out of the thawed spinach. Set it aside until it's time to assemble the dip.
  • Cut the artichoke hearts into bite-sized pieces. Set aside until it's time to assemble the dip.
  • Chop the pistachios into small pieces. Set aside until it's time to assemble the dip.
  • Mix the cream cheese with a mixer or by hand until creamy.
  • Add the garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt, and black pepper.
  • Stir in the parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, and 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  • Mix in the spinach and artichoke hearts.
  • Spray a shallow baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Spoon the spinach artichoke mixture into the baking dish and press down lightly with your hands.
  • Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and sprinkle the pistachios over the top.

Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • I recommend using frozen chopped spinach over frozen or fresh leaves of spinach.
  • Make this dish in a shallow baking dish so it's easy to dip into. I used an 8" x 5.5" baking dish.
  • The best way to spray a pan or dish with non-stick cooking spray is to open the dishwasher door, set the dish on the door, and spray it. The door will be cleaned next time you run the dishwasher and you won't have cooking spray on the counters or in the sink.
  • Make this dish (minus the pistachios) 1-2 days ahead of time and store covered in the refrigerator. Add chopped pistachios before baking.
