Hot Artichoke Crab Dip
This one came in a Sam's Circular:
1 jar Bertolli Creamy Alfredo Sauce
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
6-oz can crabmeat, drained and flaked
14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
3 oz cream cheese, cut into chunks
3 tbsp. chopped fresh Italian parsley (optional)
1/4 tsp. finely grated lemon peel
Hot pepper sauce to taste
1 medium round loaf crust Italian bread, hollowed
In 3 quart saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook garlic 30 seconds. Stir in crabmeat, sauce, artichoke hearts and cream cheese. Simmer, stirring frequently, 5 minutes or until cream cheese is melted.
Just before serving, stir in parsley, lemon peel and pepper sauce. Spoon into hollowed bread.
Serve hot and if desired, with additional Italian bread or crackers.
