    1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the spinach and artichoke hearts. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
    2. Mix cream cheese and creme fraiche into the spinach mixture. Stir in Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
