Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a small baking dish.
In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese, garlic, basil, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Gently stir in artichoke hearts and spinach.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake in the preheated oven 25 minutes, until bubbly and lightly browned.
My sister-in-law, Kristy, made the BEST spinach artichoke dip I have ever had!! I went to the grocery store and got the ingredients that I thought she might have used. When I called to ask her how she made it, she said it was just from Costco!! I laughed really hard, but decided to make one anyway….but I have to admit, I did like the Costco recipe even better than this home-made one. For the original click here.
