spinach artichoke dip (that doesn’t use mayo!)

So when I went to see what I had in my fridge to contribute food-wise to our most recent super bowl gathering, I found a bunch of spinach leaves just aching to be made in to a cheesy, artichoke-hearty batch of football-viewing-fuel!  How could I refuse?

This is a perfect appetizer for your March Madness get-togethers ;)  Just make sure you have other people around to share this with or you might hate yourself in the morning… fair warning!
