Gamma Susie's Artichoke Dip

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic minced
1 8-oz package cream cheese room temperature
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 4-oz jar marinated artichokes drained
1 Tablespoon dried Basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup fresh grated parmesean cheese

In a small fry pan saute minced garlic in oil.  Set aside. In large mixing bowl place cream cheese and mayonnaise.  Mix well.  In a blender or food processor place artichokes and blend till small bits but not pureed.  Add to cream cheese mixture along with 1/2 cup parmesean cheese and the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spray a pie plate.  Pour mixture in baking dish and smooth out evenly.  Place in a 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cheese on top.  Place back in oven until cheese melts.  Serve warm with bagettes.

This is a great way to use up some bread.  slice into one inch by 3 inch pieces and place on cookie sheet.  Put in oven at 350 degrees until lightly browned.
