  1. To make white sauce take ½ cup milk in a bowl.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons flour. That’s what’s going to thicken the sauce.
  3. Also, add a pinch of black pepper just to add a nice flavor.
  4. Add a pinch of salt. You can add more salt in the end if you don’t feel like you have enough.
  5. Mix this up. You may not get every single lump of the flour out it’s okay. It doesn’t have to be perfect and especially when it’s your first time trying out this recipe.

  7. You can cook it for 5-10 minutes in the oven to make it smooth. And keep stirring in between until it’s thick and creamy just like pudding.
  8. Now add the creamy cheese to it and whisk together. Let it melt for some time. You can add a little hot sauce to enhance the taste. It will make it from just okay to great.
  9. Meanwhile, prepare the artichokes. You can use marinated one, the grilled one, and even whole artichokes. Cut them into bite-sized pieces.
  10. Now add grated parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese to the white sauce mixture we made.
  11. Add the cut artichokes and spinach also. It is best to use chopped frozen spinach. Chop the spinach and then squeeze out all the water. There should not be any liquid. Mix it all.
