Ruthie’sCulinary Clues:  (Ruthie tested this recipe with Sendik’s Pecorino-Romano cheese, Sendik’s Spinach Artichoke Dip and Ecce Panis Roasted Garlic Italian Loaf.) Can’t find the Pecorino-Romano cheese? Use shredded Romano, a Romano blend or even an Italian cheese blend. The spinach-artichoke dip can’t have too much liquid or be too creamy. Look for a dip that has a bit of texture to it. Any leftover cheese-dip mixture is great on crackers!

Cynthia Says:  If you aren’t motivated to be so chi chi.  Get some basic bread, some shredded cheese and a tub of good lumpy spinach artichoke dip – slap it all together and grill !!  YUM!  Tomato soup on the side.  plain bread
