Artichoke Spinach Dip Pasta

What's there not to like? This dish is a guaranteed hit wherever it's served. Best of all, it's ready in under 20 minutes!

Ingredients

12
ounces dried bowtie (farfalle) pasta, cooked al dente according to package directions
3
tablespoons butter
4
cloves garlic, minced
1
8-ounce package cream cheese
2
cups whole milk
2
14-ounce cans artichoke hearts, quartered
1/3
cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2
cup grated Parmesan cheese
2
4-6 ounce bags baby spinach leaves or two bunches spinach, stalks removed

Directions

  • 1 Cook the pasta while preparing the sauce. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook the garlic for 2 minutes.
  • 2 Add the cream cheese and stir until melted (it will still be lumpy). Add the milk, bring to a simmer, and whisk until no lumps are remaining. Add the salt and simmer for 3 minutes.
  • 3 Add the artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes and simmer for another 3 minutes.
  • 4 Add the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses and stir until melted. Add the spinach, stir to incorporate, and simmer for 3 minutes or until the spinach is wilted.
  • 5 Add the pasta, stir to thoroughly coat and pour it into a serving dish. Sprinkle with panko breadcrumbs and some shavings of Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve warm.

As prepared by Daring Gourmet,

Get your veggies in a nom-worthy meal. Artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach dress up this delish cheesy pasta dish. 

This is one of those dishes where you simply can't go wrong. It's guaranteed to be a hit wherever it's served! Pretty bowtie pasta tossed with spinach, artichokes and zesty sun-dried tomatoes in an irresistibly creamy, cheesy sauce and topped with crunchy panko bread crumbs ... what’s there not to like? And the best part: It's ready in less than 20 minutes! 

Deliciousness and quickness factors aside, this dish comes with an added bonus – it's packed full of healthy goodness.
