More About This Recipe
  • My hobby is turning things into mac and cheese, and turning mac and cheese into other things. It’s a bit of an obsession (more on this next week). Today's subject is spinach and artichoke dip, the popular appetizer that is served with pita chips at many restaurants. Spinach artichoke dip is so similar to mac and cheese that I am surprised I haven't made this Spinach Artichoke Mac and Cheese already! It’s cheesy, creamy, and baked, just like all homemade mac and cheese should be. I took a standard spinach and artichoke dip recipe, upped the cheeses, and added milk and pasta. To finish it off, I added chopped pita to the top of the dish before baking to create a crunchy pita chip crust. So good, you'll never want to eat plain mac and cheese ever again.
