Description

Spicy sausage, creamy cheese, Italian seasoning and spinach make this one of the best dips I have ever had!


Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound ground spicy Italian sausage
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic, about 5 cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 4 cups roughly chopped baby spinach, packed
  • 1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups grated mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a pie plate or small casserole dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the chopped onions and cook until they are soft, 5-7 minutes. Add in the sausage and cook until no longer pink. Add in the garlic and Italian seasoning and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Drain excess fat, if necessary.
  3. Add the tomatoes and wine to the sausage mixture and cook until almost all of the liquid is evaporated. Mix in the spinach and cook for about 2 minutes, until it’s wilted.
  4. Turn heat down to low and add in the cream cheese. Stir until melted. Sprinkle in the Parmesan and mix until incorporated. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. Transfer the sausage mixture to the prepared dish. Cover with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bubbly. Turn the oven to broil and broil the cheese for 2 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
