This recipe comes from Dan Moreau, a family friend.  We generally order artichoke dip as an appetizer when dining at restaurants.  This dish was served at a Christmas gathering with the Moreau family and friends in 2001 and it is as good as or better than the restaurant version.

2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
¾ cup mayo
½ tsp garlic powder
1 can Artichoke hearts, chopped

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Drain artichokes and chop if necessary.  Mix all ingredients (use hands if needed).   Spread into shallow baking pan or dish.  Bake 30 minutes until the edges are golden brown.   Serve warm with crackers, chips, or bread.
