"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

2 10 oz. boxes frozen spinach - thawed
1/4 cup real butter
1 Tbls. minced fresh garlic
2 Tbls. minced onion
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 pint heavy cream
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup grated fresh Pecorino Romano cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded white cheddar
12 oz. jar artichoke hearts - drained, coarsely chopped

Strain spinach and squeeze through a cheesecloth to remove as much liquid as possible; mince; set aside.

In heavy saucepan over medium heat, sauté garlic and onions in butter until golden, about 3-5 min.

Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute.

Slowly whisk in cream and stock and continue cooking until boiling.

Once boiling, stir in lemon juice, hot sauce, salt, and Romano cheese; stir until cheese has melted.

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Stir in sour cream, then fold in dry spinach and artichoke hearts. Sprinkle cheddar evenly over top.

Microwave to melt cheese.
