Spinach Artichoke Pasta


I've been feeling quite unmotivated when it comes to dinners lately. I was looking for something that was quick and easy, but also a little different than the standard spaghetti with tomato sauce. I had some artichokes that I was bookmarking for Kristy's yummy looking soup, but we decided we were really in more of a pasta mood and this dish was born!


Basically all I did was make this delicious spinach and artichoke dip from Oh She Glows, and then stir it into some pasta and top it with some bread crumbs - but I was pleasantly surprised with how it came out. Since I'm not the biggest fan of the vegan cheeses out there, I'm glad this recipe doesn't use it but instead has a helping of beans hiding in the sauce.


Spinach Artichoke Pasta

1 recipe of Spinach Artichoke Dip from Oh She Glows
1 lb penne pasta
1/3 C almond milk
1/3 C mushrooms, chopped
panko crumbs

Make the spinach artichoke dip, and bake according to the directions. Meanwhile, boil your pasta and saute your mushrooms. (You could add the mushrooms into the dip before baking too, but I forgot!). Drain your pasta and once your dip is done baking, scoop it onto the pasta. Add in the mushrooms and almond milk, and stir to combine. If you want the pasta creamier you can add more almond milk as needed. Top the pasta with panko crumbs to serve.



This was a great and easy weeknight dinner, which is right up my alley. I hope you enjoy it!
I also wanted to share a photo of the great new stack of cookbooks that I got as birthday gifts - I'm so excited to check out of all these!
