4 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 teaspoon dried basil leaves

1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained, chopped

Place spinach in 2-quart microwavable casserole; add 1/4 cup water.  Cover; microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Drain well, pressing spinach with paper towels to remove excess liquid.  Chop spinach.
In large bowl, beat cream cheese with spoon until smooth.  Beat in mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons of Parmesan, the milk, garlic and basil until well blended.  Stir in spinach and artichokes.  Spread evenly in baking dish.  Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon cheese.
