  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

  2. Top with a little more Parmesan cheese.

I was looking for a spinach artichoke dip for my sister's bridal shower last spring and came across one by Paula Deen and one that my mother in law had. The Paula Deen recipe tasted very plain and bland. The other one was a little thick for my liking and the ingredients were heated seperately and never baked together. This is my hybrid of the two.
