Healthy Spinach and Artichoke Casserole

Know anyone who doesn't like vegetables? I'm betting that you do. And I'm also willing to bet that they are over the age of 5. I was never a huge fan of vegetables growing up, but I've learned that if they are prepared correctly and have enough seasoning and other flavorful ingredients mixed with them, vegetables can actually be pretty tasty (except peas...I despise peas). But I know a lot of people who refuse to even look in the direction of a vegetable. However, this casserole will change any picky eater's mind. In fact, I've seen first hand a vegetable hater love this dish (Hi Uncle Kenny!).

If changing the mind of vegetable haters in your family is not enough of a reason to try this recipe, then maybe telling you how healthy, easy, and quick this recipe is will convince you to make this dish. I know, too good to be true, right? Nope! With only one mixing bowl required, this dish is mixed and ready for the oven in a flash. After about 30 minutes of baking, you have yourself one tasty, healthy, less than 100 calories per serving side dish. Totally justifies second and third servings. And with how delicious this casserole is, it's hard for even the vegetable haters to resist multiple servings!

Healthy Spinach and Artichoke Casserole
(8-10 servings)

30 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 8-ounce package fat free cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup Light Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.

Drain the thawed spinach by placing it in a towel and twisting until no more liquid comes out.

Add the drained spinach to a large mixing bowl. Add the cream cheese and Miracle Whip, and mix until ingredients are blended together. Add the Parmesan cheese, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, and artichoke hearts. Mix ingredients until blended.

Pour ingredients into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. Serve warm.

    1. Haha I was half tempted to grab some pita chips and dip them into this casserole! Basically one and the same. :)

  3. This looks amazing--thank you so much for sharing on What's In Your Kitchen Wednesday!

  4. Love that you made this a casserole instead of a dip. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing on Thursdays Treasures.

    1. This casserole is a little more hearty than a dip, but they are very similar. I adore spinach artichoke dip, so I love having it as a side dish. And you can't beat that it's on the light side too!
