Ingredients:

Two 8-oz. (medium) russet potatoes

2 cups roughly chopped spinach leaves

1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese

2 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic

Dash each salt and black pepper

Directions:

Peel a long 2-inch-wide strip of potato skin from the top of each potato. Pierce potatoes several times with a fork. Microwave for 5 minutes, or until soft.

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave spinach for 1 minute, or until wilted.

Add chopped artichoke hearts, mozzarella, cream cheese, 1 tsp. Parm, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix until uniform.
