Get Ready

Servings: Serves 8

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Prep Time: 20 minutes


1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
4 oz. Neufchatel cheese (reduced-fat cream cheese), at room temperature
1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup fat-free half and half
5 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese, divided
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. reduced fat shredded Italian cheese blend, divided
1 (14 oz.) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
1/2 tsp. paprika
baked pita chips, bagel chips, carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber slices, sliced bell peppers (optional dippers)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8- or 9-inch square pan with vegetable cooking spray. In a food processor, combine cottage cheese, cream cheese, yogurt, and half and half and puree until very smooth. Alternately, combine ingredients in a large bowl and blend with an immersion blender or electric mixer (will be less smooth)
2. Add 4 Tbsp. of the Parmesan cheese, garlic, scallions, mustard, pepper, salt, and 1/2 cup of the Italian cheese. Pulse 8 to 10 times just to incorporate ingredients. If not using a food processor, stir to combine.
3. Add artichokes and spinach and pulse 8 to 10 times until all ingredients are combined and texture is chunky. Do not puree. Alternately, stir to combine.
4. Transfer mixture to prepared pan. Top with remaining 1 Tbsp. Parmesan and 1 Tbsp. Italian blend cheese and sprinkle with paprika. (Dip may be made up to a day in advance up to this point and refrigerated, covered, for later baking.)
5. Bake until slightly bubbly around the edges and cheese on top is melted and golden, about 25 minutes. Serve hot, with baked pita chips, bagel chips, and fresh vegetables for dipping.
