Spinach Dip Pasta

Time to stuff your face with one of the best pasta dishes ever: Spinach Dip Pasta.

A few weeks ago I found an awesome recipe on White Lights On Wednesday: Spin Dip Pasta. When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. And boy am I glad that I did. I did make a few adjustments – I used fresh spinach as I had some on hand and I added grilled chicken and some hot sauce to the mix. This is one fantastic tasting meal! And with there only being two of us in my household, the leftovers lasted for a few days.
What did I like best about this recipe? The combination of flavors mingled very well together. The sauce was creamy and delicious. The artichokes gave the dish a nice, mellow flavor. This will be something that I definitely make again. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
