1/2 onion finely chopped
1 stick butter *
red pepper flakes to taste

*Can all be substituted for healthier alternatives

2. Sautee Onions until soft, but do not brown.

3. Add the thawed spinach to the onions and allow to cook for about a minute.

4. Mix in the cream cheese until melted and blended with the spinach and onions.

5. Mix in the Sour Cream, parmesan cheese and artichoke hearts.

6. Remove from heat and dump the dip into a casserole or crock dish.
