  • olive oil
    1 tsp
  • onion(s) (finely diced)
  • artichoke hearts (drained and rinsed)
    1 (15-oz) can
  • dried thyme
    1/2 tsp
  • spinach (coarsely chopped)
    6 oz
  • light mayonnaise
    1/4 cup
  • light spreadable cheese wedges (such as laughing cow)
    4 wedges
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese (divided)
    2 tbsp

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add artichokes and thyme and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until veggies begin to brown. Add spinach and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until spinach is wilted. Remove skillet from heat.

  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine light mayonnaise, cheese wedges, and 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds to soften, then mix well. If needed, heat mixture in 15-second increments until cheeses are softened and easily mixed with mayonnaise.
