Spinach & Artichoke Dip Pasta
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.Advertisement
Combine spinach and 1 tablespoon water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Add cream cheese and milk to the pan; whisk until the cream cheese is melted. Add Parmesan, garlic powder and pepper; cook, whisking until thickened and bubbling. Drain as much liquid as possible from the spinach. Stir the drained spinach into the sauce, along with artichokes and the pasta. Cook until warmed through.
Tip: If you can find frozen artichoke hearts, they also work well in this recipe. Thaw before using.
