spinach cannellini bean dip

this might be my new favorite dip.
it's very close to a hummus but smoother and none of the usual suspects.
it's got tons of spinach, cannellini beans, basil, and olive oil...all healthy!
my toddlers gobbled it up, and honestly? i had a hard time keeping my spoon out of it either!

Spinach Cannellini Bean Dip
Makes about 2 cups
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup packed basil leaves, rinsed and patted dry
2 cups packed spinach leaves, rinsed and patted dry
1/4-1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, depending on how "loose" you want it
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper to taste

Aaaaaand blend until smooth!  Easy as that!
Serve with carrot sticks, toasted pita points, or spread on a tortilla with some chicken for a roll-up!
