 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   14      ozs           canned artichoke hearts -- drained
   30      ozs           frozen chopped spinach -- thawed and drained
    8      ozs           cream cheese
    2      tbsps         mayonnaise
    4      tbsps         olive oil
    6      tbsps         milk
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
      1/3  c             grated fresh Parmesan cheese
 
 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 arti
 chokes. 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° for 40 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned.
 
 You can refrigerate this dish after putting it together and before baking it, b
 ut if it is chilled, slightly increase the baking time.
