1 cup (4 ounces) finely shredded Asiago (or Parmesan) cheese

1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup jarred roasted red sweet peppers, drained
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced green onions

fresh parsley leaves (optional)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 1 1/2-quart baking dish or 9-inch glass pie plate with nonstick spray.

2. In a food processor, combine cream cheese, Asiago cheese, and garlic. Cover and process until mixture is combined. Add artichoke hearts, 1 cup roasted peppers, mushrooms and green onion. Cover and pulse just until finely chopped (not pureed).

*If you don't have a food processor, you may also use a hand mixer. Beat cream cheese and Asiago cheese on medium to high speed until combined. Finely chop garlic, artichoke hearts, 1 cup roasted peppers, mushrooms and green onion. Stir into cheese mixture. Transfer to baking dish and bake as directed.
