Absolutely loved this dip! I served it with melba toast rounds but you can serve it with whatever dippers you wish.

Made this tonight and it turned out great. I don't like mayo so I used sour cream instead. I served this dip with tortilla chips.

HUGE hit! I made three of these for our office holiday party. I baked them then reheated at work in the microwave. I could have made 6 and it still would have disappeared immediately.

I love this recipe because it uses basic ingredients that I can easily keep on hand for last minute needs. Everyone loves this dip and I can whip it up for the kids quick when they bring home friends from school.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Everytime I make this dip people just can't get enough. I usually make two batches of it because the first one goes so fast. Going to make this tomorrow again for the 4th so I stopped back to print it out again as someone stole my copy from my kitchen!

REVIEW: recipe rating
Taste was good, but I must have done something wrong, since the consistency was too thick and solid. Ended up more like a vegetable side dish than a dip. Tried to follow the recipe exactly, the only variance was that I used all romano cheese instead of half parm. That should not have made a diff in consistency.

This recipe is awesome. I made this for the first time as a appetizer for Thanksgiving. It was an instant hit. I plan on making it for Christmas.

REVIEW: recipe rating
This a great recipe and one that I love to make. Our family likes to get together and each will make a finger-food dish and this is one of them. The only thing I add to this recipe is about 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to give it a little zing.
We just love Olive Garden. Thank you for this recipe.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Made this exactly as directed and it was very attractive. I took it to a neighborhood gathering and after the first taste no one ate anymore of it. Although I like all the ingredients, I did not care for it either. Even the texture was just right so maybe our taste buds took the day off. I will try it again and thanks for posting.

Remarkable! I love this recipe so much! I made it yesterday with my mom and we both loved the taste. Thanks!! We will be making this again on my dad’s birthday. Hope he likes it!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This was very flavorful; however, the instructions are very vague. It doesn't indicate when to include the cream cheese and it says "top with cheese." What kind of cheese? I mixed the cream cheese with all of the other ingredients and did not top with any cheese. It was very good, but a little confusing.

Scrumptious! Mayonnaise sounded too heavy for me, so I used sour cream.

This was a BIG HIT. It really does have the same high quality as Olive Garden. I think even better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I made this recipe for my daughter's dorm of 50 girls. Even with such large quantities, it was delicious. Followed the recipe exactly, except I used extra mozzarella on the top of each of the four lasagna foil pans.

Never tasted this at Olive Garden, but this was a hit at our last family gathering and I plan to make again and again it was great with crackers or chips!

I made this for a house poker tournament a week ago and everybody loved it. I will continue to make it for future parties. I especially love this dip with Stacy's Pita Chips.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Excellent recipe that can be doubled and tripled depending on party size. I made the dip for my college hospitality class and everyone asked if my mom made it. Very easy to follow and I added a little extra garlic. I got an A+ for this class project on artichokes.

This recipe is amazing! I use sour cream instead of mayonaise though. It's great for a party, everyone loved it. Also, I ran out of spinach one day and used brocolli and it was still great.

This recipe is amazing. It is a frequent request at any friend or family member's parties, or any excuse they can think of for me to make it.

I made this for a dinner party last Saturday night and it was really, really good--so much better than other recipes I have tried!

COMMENT:
When do you add the cream cheese and the mozzarella cheese? It says to top with cheese before baking - is that the mozzarella? And do you add the cream cheese in the beginning with the Parmesan and Romano?

omg i made this dip last night for christmas eve and it was awesome! everybody loved it. i would recomend this to everybody!!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I've been making this for a couple of years now and everyone loves it! My boyfriend and his mom are anti-vegetable (for the most part) and they can't get enough of it, as long as I chop the artichoke very fine. I make mine without the garlic salt though, I think it tastes better, also, to make it easier I'll buy a bag of Italian shredded cheese blend. By far a better dip than any restaurant I've been to.

COMMENT:
The recipe sounds close, but I work for Olive Garden and we don't use mayo in the dip, we use sour cream, no mozzarella, add red pepper flakes.

This dip was a big hit. I brought it to a party and had several requests for the recipe. I've never had the Olive Garden version, but this sure was YUMMY!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I haven't tried this dip yet, but based on these comments, I'M STOKED!!!!


Guest at CDKitchen.com




REVIEW: recipe rating
while this isn't EXACTLY like olive garden's, it is super close, and quite possibly, better. okay, okay... maybe there's not too much difference at all... it's hard to say, really. but i followed the directions as stated (usually i kind of twist things up a bit), and it has proven to be a sure hit time and time again.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Great recipe. Using a pinch of crushed red peppers in the mix gives it a litle spice kick. Also, to make it a true copycat, top the cooked dip with diced roma tomatos.

The most brilliant spinach-artichoke recipe!!!


Guest at CDKitchen.com




REVIEW: recipe rating
This is the best spinach dip I have ever eaten. I added a little extra basil and extra cheese on top all my friends want me to bring them some whenever I make it!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This recipe is fantastic! I switched garlic powder for garlic salt or cloves, a mix of italian seasonings for the basil, and I didn't use any Mozzerella because I had it in a slow cooker. It was a hit and now everyone wants the recipe!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This recipe is super easy to follow and the result is outstanding! We love this dip and made it for Thanksgiving. It was gone in minutes! Next time we'll have to make more. I think putting it in a toasted bread bowl would be the perfect way to serve the dip, we used toasted slices of bread this time. Awesome recipe!
