Updated Nov 6, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original French Bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

    Meanwhile, cook spinach as directed on box. Drain well; squeeze with paper towel to get out as much liquid as possible. In medium bowl, stir together cooked and drained spinach, cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the mayonnaise, bell pepper and garlic until well blended. Spoon spinach mixture into hollowed-out French bread loaf.
