I loooveee spinach artichoke dip…and this recipe is basically spinach artichoke dip added to pasta, so how could I go wrong? 

Recipe courtesy of: Real Simple Magazine, April 2010

Ingredients:

                8 ounces mezzi rigatoni (or some other short pasta)

                1- 14oz can artichoke hearts, rinsed and quartered

                1- 9 ounce package frozen creamed spinach, thawed

                ½ cup grated Parmesan

                2 cups grated mozzarella

                Black pepper

                1 clove garlic, minced (I added this because what good Italian recipe doesn’t include garlic)

Directions:         

Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain, and return it to the pot.  Heat the broiler.

Add the artichoke hearts, spinach, Parmesan, half the mozzarella, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the pasta and toss to combine.

Transfer the mixture to a shallow 2 quart broilerproof baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella.  Broil until the cheese in browned in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.
