Spinach Artichoke Dip...

My in-laws came over for dinner on Saturday night so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out a new recipe that I'd been thinking about... a healthy version of everyone's favorite appetizer:  spinach artichoke dip.  It's so good that you won't even miss the cheese... well, maybe a little, but I promise it's still really good!
