Spinach-Parmesan Stuffed Artichoke Cups

Melt 2 TB Smart Balance (or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, etc)
in sautepan over med. heat with 1 clove (or more, to taste) minced garlic.

Add artichoke bottoms to pan and saute 2 minutes on either side. Remove and place in baking dish.

Add 2 cups fresh spinach to sautepan and allow to wilt.

Remove spinach leaves from heat, and place in small bowl. Add 1/2 cup FF or LF grated parmesan cheese, and mix together.

Spoon spinach mixture into artichoke bottoms, and cover with a light layer of shredded LF/FF parmesan/asiagio cheese.

Drizzle cups lightly with butter-garlic sauce (from pan) and bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.


I used can artichoke bottoms for this recipe, but I imagine that fresh artichokes would make it even better. You can also mix and match the fillings to suit your tastes...(roasted red peppers, feta, etc) the artichoke bottoms make a perfect cup for just about any topping you like. These are also wonderful for a snack on the go.
