Artichoke & Spinach Casserole

If you like Artichoke & Spinach dip, you'll love this.
It's rich and creamy and is an easy side dish.

8 oz pkg cream cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
2 cans artichoke hearts, in water
3 pkgs frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Using a mixer, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, milk, and salt and pepper until whipped. Rough chop artichokes and add to mixture along with the spinach. Give it a good stir. Pour into casserole dish and top with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly golden on top.

Clearly this is one of those recipes that can serve as a springboard for a whole new dish. You could easily add sauteed onions and mushrooms, or any of your favorite vegetables, cheeses, or even noodles.
