  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Drain the artichoke hearts. Roughly chop two of the hearts. Keep separate from the whole hearts and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the garlic and cook just until it begins to turn golden. Add the spinach. Stir and cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat.
  4. Transfer the spinach mixture to a food processor or blender. Puree with whole artichoke hearts, beans, yogurt, salt, and lemon zest. Puree until smooth. Stir in chopped artichokes and transfer to a small baking dish.
  5. Top with grated Parmesan and breadcrumbs. Bake until golden and bubbly -- about 35 minutes. Serve hot with whole wheat bread or crackers.
