Cheesy Spinach Dip

There are about a thousand recipes on the Internet for cheesy spinach dips.  In fact, I posted about Spinach Artichoke Dip just last year.  But I have to confess that most times, these dips all taste the same to me.  What I like about this recipe is that it uses ‘real food’ cottage cheese and sour cream, rather than cream cheese.

Last week I made the mistake of spoiling my dinner with a dip, so this week I planned dinner to be an appetizer plate.  The dip was great with both crackers and carrot sticks, and fulfilled my craving for a fun and cheesy meal.


Cheesy Spinach Dip

1 (10 oz.) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 c. low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 c.  low-fat sour cream
1/4 c. + 1 T freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. shredded reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
1 T whole wheat flour
Black Pepper

Mix spinach, cottage cheese, sour cream, 1/4 c. Parmesan, cheddar cheese, and whole wheat flour in a large bowl.  Season well with black pepper.  Top with remaining 1 T Parmesan.  Pour into an 8″ pie plate coated with cooking spray.  Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.
