We have this recipe with our Thanksgiving dinner annually. I was looking for a similar recipe online and couldn't find one, so I asked my mother to send it to me.

  • Put spinach into a microwave-safe bowl. Pour water over the spinach. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap.

  • Cook in microwave oven on High, stirring occasionally, until the spinach is heated through, 9 to 11 minutes; transfer to a colander to drain, pressing to remove as much moisture from the spinach as possible.

  • Melt 1/2 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat; add spinach, cream cheese, water chestnuts, and garlic powder. Cook and stir until the cheese melts, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Spread artichoke hearts into the bottom of a baking dish. Spread spinach mixture over the artichoke hearts. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the spinach mixture. Dot top of casserole with butter pieces.

  • Bake in preheated oven until heated through, 20 to 25 minutes.

As I did not have cream cheese I made it using Ricotta cheese and a tiny bit of mayonnaise and I used real garlic in the place of the powder. Turned out well. Read More

Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. Everyone enjoyed it. I added about a half a cup of shredded cheddar cheese before adding the bread crumbs. Make sure you take off as much of the harder areas of the artichokes as possible. I think next time I will mix the artichokes with the spinach. Read More

This is a classic right out of the fifties. A couple of notes- buy sliced water chestnuts, let the cream cheese come to room temperature, use canned artichokes (drained) as they are more tender. And yes, stir the artichokes in with the spinach and chestnuts and cheese. Read More
