I warned you, and it happened – the evil Olive Garden across the street is open for business. I am not to be trusted. The idea of unlimited bread sticks, bowls of hearty soup, and a premixed martini certainly all sound like a good thing. In reality, we know the guilt that comes with Olive Garden is not exactly the best thing for anyone.

Pasta dishes are not hard to make at home and heavy cream is something we should never have in copious amounts anyway. Not to mention, the idea of waiting 45 minutes less than 20 feet from my front door for supper seems rather ironic to me. So, in order to curb my inner fat kid’s craving for a carbohydrate feast, I set out to make my own Olive Garden specialties.

This spinach artichoke dip would make a perfect appetizer for your holiday meal. Something you could throw down right before Thanksgiving, Christmas, or as I did, eating it the moment I was done snapping these pictures. It is also a great topping for homemade pizza.

So as far as the classic Italian fare Olive Garden goes, I can wait until the local excitement dies down, the line gets a little shorter, and I run out of recipes in my reader before I go over and indulge.

In the meantime enjoy this spinach artichoke dip in less time than it would take to get a table.

The recipe looks good with the exception of the mayonnaise. Being an ex Olive Garden manager. Olive Garden does not carry mayonnaise in the kitchen.
