Recipe Details


We’re completely addicted to spinach artichoke dip, and have been known to finish a bowl solo in one sitting (with a bowl of tortilla chips, of course). After digging into one such bowl, it occurred to us: “why not transform this gooey cheesiness into a main course?”. Turns out we were definitely on the right track, as the addition of whole-grain pasta turned this much-loved appetizer into the perfect dinner, packed with Parmesan, mozzarella, marinated artichokes, and spinach. For a bit of added crunch, there’s toasted breadcrumbs on top!
