Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

This is one of the recipes I made for this year's New Years Eve party. It's also one of the few recipes that I remembered to take a picture of. It's standard fare at any large get-together in our house, as it's generally loved by all.

1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 C mayonnaise
1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 C grated Romano cheese
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste
1 (14 oz.) can artichokes, drained and chopped
1/2 C frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
1/4 C shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Lightly grease a small baking dish.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese, garlic, basil, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Gently stir in artichoke hearts and spinach.

3. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake in oven for 25 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned.

I usually serve this with nachos, though it would also go well with veggies.
