Warm Broccoli Cheese Spread

Wow I can't believe it has been a whole two months since I've posted a recipe! Some of that time I was on vacation, but still that is no excuse. Hopefully I can get back in to the swing of things and post some yummy recipes if any one is still out there after my hiatus.

I tried this warm broccoli cheese spread the other night for book club and it was a hit. It was really easy and fast to put together and tasted delicious!

Warm Broccoli Cheese Spread
adapted from Taste of Home

1 package low fat cream cheese, softened
1 cup (8 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained and patted dry
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream and salad dressing mix until blended. Fold in the broccoli and 1 1/2 cups of cheese.

Spoon into a shallow 1 quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve warm with crackers.
