Ingredients

  • olive oil for the pan
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 1/4 cups marinated artichoke hearts, drained, roughly chopped, tougher leaves removed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, depending on how much heat you like
  • 5 cups (about 8-ounces) packed fresh spinach leaves, washed and dried, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups Gruyère, grated
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Coat the bottom of a (10-inch), oven-safe skillet with olive oil, and place it over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook just until the onions become slightly tender, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the artichokes, paprika, nutmeg, cayenne and stir to blend.
  3. Mix in the spinach in two or three batches, cooking just until wilted.
  4. Turn on the oven broiler, and then add Gruyère and cream cheese. Once the cheeses are melted, season to taste with salt and pepper. (Here's How to Season to Taste.)

  5. Evenly sprinkle the top with the Parmesan and then place the skillet under the broiler, just until the top is golden, about 1 minute.
  6. Serve with chips, bread or raw vegetables.
