Skinny Spinach Artichoke Dip

Whenever I go to a restaurant, this is ALWAYS my entree of choice.  I was browsing my usual food blogs the other day and decided to adapt this particular recipe to make it a little skinnier -- and it was actually pretty easily done.  I ate a serving of this with a serving of Triscuit thins and it was the perfect combination.  Talk about a tasty late night snack!
