This sounds devine! Because I am doing my best to go fresh & local, I will use fresh veggies & cook them ahead. Also, I will add a few seeds or nuts to add fiber & good fats. It will be a complete meal for me. I can not wait to try this! Submitted by:

I made this last night and loved it. I used fresh spinach and used Ms. Dash Italian flavored seasoning. It was great. The artichokes and the tomatoes with the spinach is yum! Erp..I did go over my calorie count abit for the day...but so worth it! Healthy too..you can do with less butter. Submitted by:

I eat low carb so I changed it up to apply to my plan I think we Americans get use to 'big' porportions I found that it served about 12 We can use our own common sense here & adapt to a great idea for a recipe I personal think it is brave for anyone to create & add a recipe here kudos!

while this sounds delish, it is such a small serving size for the calorie and fat count that I'd rather just have my spinach with garlic and enjoy a much larger portion - thanks for offering the suggestion though! Submitted by:

sounds good, but you can totally cut out the butter - its too much fat Submitted by:

Fat free mayo and sour cream are fine here--you won't taste a difference, but don't fool yourself on the per serving calorie count. Submitted by:

You can save calories by going with canned or frozen artichoke hearts, instead of the marinated kind. Then add a little extra garlic, or cayenne pepper, or something to spark up the flavor. Submitted by:

It sounds fabu but fat. I'll used artichokes in brine and not sautee the breadcrumbs. Actually, it probably doesn't need breadcrumbs if served as a dip. Submitted by:

Begging everyone's pardon!! The calorie count is sitting right there and I didn't even notice it because I kept thinking it should be at the bottom. I guess in theory you could cut this up into tiny little portions but it is still unrealistic to expect 18 servings out of it. s Submitted by:

this is fabulous. Problem is, it does NOT make 18 servings, which would mean that a serving size is only 2 TBSP. It's more like only 6 servings, so you need to multiply the calorie count and all the nutritional info by 3. Submitted by:

I think this recipe is wonderful, but we couldn't do with 18 portions or so much fat. I re worked it a squosh and put it on as Heavenly Spinach redux...All credit to Tahlon please!! Submitted by:

I would definitely cut out all the butter. The mushrooms could easily be sauted in a cooking spray and if you substitute the butter in the bread crumbs for a fat free or light version you could enjoy a much bigger serving without the guilt. Submitted by:

I would eliminate the butter completely. The way it is will come to a million calories a forkfull.

This sounds very good...but the butter for the bread crumb topping is 800 calories alone! Better to spray the bread crumbs with cooking oil and toss with some minced garlic and/or other seasonings to top the casserole and hence cut the calorie/fat count significantly! Submitted by:

I'd have to agree w/ those who'd consider cutting down on some of the fat ingredients. It does sound yummy! Submitted by:
