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.

Used 3 packages of spinach. Cut water chestnuts slices in half. Added 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Added pinch red pepper and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Added 2 tablespoons Parmesan to scant 1/2 c. bread crumbs and mixed in the 2 tablespoons of butter melted to sprinkle over casserole. Read More

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
