Creamy Rosa Baked Artichoke Dip

Everyone’s always looking for the perfect baked artichoke dip.  Well, I am, at any rate.  And I’d bet quite a few of you out there are searching as well!

Over the years, I’ve had many a different version at various restaurants.  After a while, they all start to blend together, and I wish for an artichoke dip with a little more flair.  Something to kick up the flavor and make it extra memorable.

I tested many different ideas and kept a notebook to record my thoughts.

All that thinking led to coming up with a delicious new version to share with you.  I’m using pasta sauce to make a “pasta rosa” version of baked artichoke dip.  Typically, pasta rosa sauce is alfredo sauce flavored with Italian tomato sauce, but in this case, we’re going to make it even creamier by flavoring cream cheese with tomato sauce.

I was inspired by the new Classico Riserva Pasta Sauce.  This new product has exceptional taste that will really take your meals to the next level.

Tips for Making Baked Artichoke Dip

  • If you will be serving this directly to your table, choose a cute baking dish.  Somehow, that makes it mroe festive.  I like to fix it for myself and pretend I’m dining at a restaurant!
  • Use any kind of breadcrumbs, such as Italian seasoned bread crumbs or panko, to add a little extra flavor and texture.  Panko breadcrumbs are crunchy, and seasoned breadcrumbs add a nice flavor and a pleasant crust on top.  You can also get the best of both worlds by using a little of both.
  • If you have leftovers, let cool before covering.  If you cover the dish too soon, it will trap steam, which will condense and leave water sitting in the dip.  To reheat, simply bake again until hot and slightly bubbly.
