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.
