Who doesn’t love going to the Olive Garden? My local Olive Garden is simply packed all of the time on the weekend. You better get there early when you go. Sometimes I have been known to enjoy a drink and an appetizer in the bar while my table gets ready.

What makes the Olive Garden Spinach Artichoke Dip so special? It might be the five different types of cheese that are used in the sauce. Five different types of cheese: Parmesan, Romano, Asiago, Cream Cheese, and Mozzarella all combine together to make a flavorful sauce that you are going to love.

Serve Olive Garden Spinach Artichoke Dip with fresh baguettes that have been sliced thin, buttered, and toasted in the oven. You won’t want to miss out on delicious crostini! I know you could enjoy this dip with breadsticks, but I promise the way you should enjoy it is with the small pieces of toast, they are so crispy and buttery.
