Paula Deen's Lean: Hot Asparagus Dip

Oh my goodness! I absolutely loved this recipe! I would describe the taste and texture similar to that of an artichoke dip, but a little bit more of a bold flavor. If you like artichoke dip and asparagus, then you will probably enjoy this delicious, easy-to-make appetizers.

Serves 8

Two 12-ounce cans asparagus spears
1 1/2 cups Light Hellmann's Mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus additional for sprinkling
2 cloves garlic, shopped
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Drain and chop the asparagus. Add the remaining ingredients and mix; pour into baking dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until slightly brown and bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese. Serve hot with lightly toasted French bread rounds or multigrain pita chips.

RESULTS:The first night I served this, I used lightly toasted multigrain bread. The next day, I made myself a little snack with a serving of left-over dip and sliced whole wheat flat bread. It was delicious!

Another quick, simple, delicious and nutritious recipe...inspired by Paula Deen and easily made lean! ENJOY!!
