Spinach Artichoke Dip Pasta

Spinach and artichoke dip is one of my favorite appetizers at pretty much any chain restaurant. They all have it and it makes me happy. All of that gooey, melty cheese with the veggies cutting through is just snacking perfection! I decided to put a spin on it and use it for dinner with my favorite Italian flair. This spinach artichoke dip pasta could not have been easier or quicker to make!

First, I just quickly chopped a whole bunch of fresh baby spinach and jarred artichoke hearts that I drained. They gave the spinach artichoke dip pasta so much texture and flavor! There is something about the way they compliment each other that just works so beautifully.

From there the spinach artichoke dip pasta came together so quickly! While I got a pound of pasta cooking, I started on the easy sauce with lots of cream cheese, goat cheese, and seasoning. Now my husband and I love garlic, so I went with a tablespoon of garlic powder to really cut through the creaminess. For company I think I might have dialed it back to half of a tablespoon!

The other key to the spinach artichoke dip pasta was a little beer that I poured in with the chopped up spinach and artichokes. That was it for the sauce! Then I just tossed it with my cooked pasta and lots of parmesan cheese. It smelled so incredible!

I scooped the spinach artichoke dip pasta into pretty bowls and topped each bowl with a little fresh basil. Then it was time to dig in while I washed it down with the rest of the beer I used to cook it! Oh my goodness, it was my favorite dip magically turned into my new favorite pasta dish. It was basically mac and cheese taken to a whole new level and I loved every bite. Hope you all enjoy this amazing mash up! xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1 pound rotini pasta
  • 1 pound cream cheese
  • 4 ounces herbed goat cheese
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 cup beer the rest goes to the chef!
  • 1 jar artichokes hearts 12 ounce size, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 1/3 cups baby spinach finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • fresh basil coarsely chopped as needed for garnish
Instructions
  1. Get a large pot of water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Salt it generously. Cook the rotini in it for about 8 minutes, just until tender. While the pasta cooks combine the cream cheese, goat cheese, garlic powder, dried onion, salt and pepper in another large skillet with deep sides. Heat it up over medium high heat and stir it all together until it melts into a creamy sauce. Add in the beer, artichokes and spinach and let it all gently simmer together for another couple of minutes.
  2. The pasta should be done by this point. Drain it and add it to the sauce, along with the parmesan cheese. Stir it all together thoroughly, then take the skillet off of the heat. Scoop the pasta into pretty bowls and top it with a little chopped basil for garnish. Serve immediately and enjoy!
