Spinach Artichoke Dip

This weekend I spent Friday night at a friend's house watching Friday Night Lights and Saturday with family for Easter. It really got me thinking about party foods I could make to share with everyone, and dip was one of the first things that came to mind. This cheesy spinach and artichoke dip was so easy to make and super tasty. There was none of it left on Friday! The first time I made it, I chopped the artichoke hearts into pretty small pieces, but the second time around I left them a bit bigger since having nice chunks to dig into made it that much more amazing.

I used mozzarella, parmesan, and asiago. The original recipe calls for romano, but I couldn't find it fast enough and I didn't have the patience to keep looking, so asiago it was.

mmm...
