Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375ºF.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic, crushed red pepper and spinach; cook 2 to 3 min. or just until spinach is wilted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Mix cream cheese, roasted peppers, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella and 1/2 cup Parmesan in medium bowl until blended. Add spinach mixture; mix well.
Cut ciabatta loaf lengthwise in half. Remove bread from insides of both bread halves, leaving 1-inch-thick shells. Reserve removed bread for another use. (See tip.)
Fill bread shells with spinach mixture; place on parchment-covered baking sheet. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until cream cheese mixture is heated through and tops are golden brown. Cool 5 min.
Cut each bread shell crosswise into 6 slices. Cut each bread slice crosswise in half, then diagonally in half to serve.
How to Use the Removed Bread
Use pulsing action of food processor to process the removed bread into desired-size crumbs. Store in resealable plastic bag at room temperature until ready to use as desired.
Plan ahead! Eating in moderation involves planning ahead to make sure healthy foods are readily available. Make sure to be intentional in your food planning and lifestyle patterns so that you can also fit in some of your family’s favorites.
This delicious appetizer can be prepped ahead of time. Fill bread shells with spinach mixture, then wrap tightly and refrigerate up to 2 days before baking (unwrapped) as directed, increasing the baking time if necessary until spinach mixture is heated through.
