Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.

  • 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.

I made as listed and it was easy and yummy. I would use less garlic powder next time because it was a bit too strong. I think adding red pepper flakes to this would be good. I'll definitely be making again. Read More
