ISO: Recipe for Spinach and Artichoke dip

my wife and i love tgi fridays spinach and artichoke dip. we buy it frozen from the supermarket and just toss it in the nuker for a minute, and serve it with breadsticks or crusty italian bread.
unfortunately, ever since they changed their packaging (it used to come in 2 smaller seperate sections, now i's one larger tray), it seems the recipe has also changed. it was almost unbearably salty the last time we made it, so i was thinking that it would be nice to make it from scratch.
does anyone have a good and fairly easy spinach and artichoke heart recipe?

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

1 stick butter
1 cup diced onion
3-4 T crushed garlic
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated REAL parmesan cheese
1 T chicken boiullon granules
1 T lemon juice
8 oz sour cream
8 oz frozen chopped spinach
6 oz artichoke hearts
1 cup mozzarella cheese
8 oz cream cheese
dash of red pepper
fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
other seasonings to taste

Saute onions and garlic in butter, covered, until wilted and transparent, 30-40 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour on mixture and whisk to form a paste (add a few more pats of butter if flour is lumpy and not mixing). Cook on medium heat for a few minutes, stirring constantly until flour mixture is golden. Whisking constantly to prevent lumps, slowly pour in chicken stock. Cook on medium heat until mixture thickens, and add remaining ingredients (can be placed in a crock pot at this time and set to high until combined, then on low and stirred often). Heat until all cheeses are melted and combined. Add more cream to desired consistency. Do not overcook or ingredients will separate and become lumpy. Serve with crackers, tortilla chips, or toasted pita bread.

We had a local place close up recently, and that took away one of the best spinach artichoke dips I've ever had. It had a great flavor, with just a hint of bacon to it. Plus they had great cajun food, and usually had a blues band a couple of times a week.
