    I agree with others that it serves approx. six and replaced butter with olive oil, marinated artichock with brine soaked artichock and added garlic. Next time I'll use fresh spinach. - 2/20/09

    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. - 2/20/09

    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. - 10/28/08

    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. - 5/23/09

    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. - 1/27/09

    This was great! I tweaked it a bit and didn't use butter, olive oil to saute, plain yogurt instead of of sour cream, cherry tomatoes, lot's of spinach, regular bread crumbs which I seasoned myself. - 12/6/08

    Tasty, I cut out some of the butter. Only used a little for the rooms. Then rather than cooking the breadcrumbs in butter, I sprinkled the top with the breadcrumbs and sprayed them with Pam also "greased" the pan with Pam. Kids liked it as well. Will make it again! - 10/29/08

    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. - 10/28/08

    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! - 10/28/08

    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. - 8/5/09

    Sounds really great since I LOVE Spinach and Artichokes, however I agree with many and say that 18 servings is CRAZY! Maybe you should say what the serving size is....which is looking like maybe 1/2 a cup? (rough guess), definitely would not make a meal. ;P - 5/23/09

    I made this recipe and I thought it tasted a little too mayo-y. Then it could have been the brand I used (should always still with Hellman's! haha). Overall I would say this recipe was tasty and definitely worth giving a shot. - 8/5/09

    This is a lot like the spinach and artichoke dip that I make for parties. Try dipping carrot stick in it, SO GOOD! - 1/27/09

    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 - 12/13/08

    ooooo does not sound healthy to me at all. Especially since trying to lose weight I do not hide or weigh down veg in sour cream or glops of butter. I love spinach, I love artichokes, I adorrrrrrrrre tomatoes, but I much prefer them on their own or if they're combined -as a fresh salad!!! - 8/5/09
