Artichoke Spinach Casserole
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup evaporated milk (could use Fat Free)
4 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, drained
2 cans (14 ounces each) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and thinly sliced
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream (could use Fat Free)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (could use Fat Free)
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large skillet, cook mushrooms and broth over medium heat until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Whisk flour and milk until smooth; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms.
Place half of the artichoke in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Top with half of the spinach mixture. Repeat layers.
Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper; dollop over casserole. Sprinkle with paprika if desired.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
Yield: 12-14 servings.
