    3      pk            Chopped spinach, frozen
                         (10oz) , defrosted
      1/2  lb            Cream cheese
    2      tb            Mayonnaise
    4      tb            Butter or olive oil
    6      tb            Milk

   If frozen artichokes are used, cook according to instructions. Do not
   overcook. Drain the artichokes, and place them on bottom of a 3-quart
   casserole. Squeeze as much moisture as possible from the spinach, and 
 layer
   it on top of the artichokes. In an electric mixer blend the cream 
 cheese,
   mayonnaise, and butter or oil until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in 
 the
   milk, and spread this mixture over the top of the spinach. Sprinkle with
   pepper and the cheese.
   
   Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, or until the top is 
 lightly
   browned.
   
   You can refrigerate this dish after putting it together and before 
 baking
   it, but if it is chilled, slightly increase the baking time.
