Spinach & Artichoke Alfredo Pasta

Spinach and Artichoke Dip is something I have enjoyed for a couple of decades now.  I think Spinach and Artichokes just make such a great pair, especially when combined with creamy cheese.  That’s where I got this idea for Spinach & Artichoke Alfredo Pasta.  The spinach and artichokes give it a nice fresh taste and the creamy alfredo really rounds out the flavors.  I like to serve it on top of penne pasta because I like how easy it is to add to the skillet once the meat and veggies are done.  Plus, the alfredo sauce gets inside the penne pasta so you get a little more with every bite!

This Spinach & Artichoke Alfredo Pasta is sure to become a weeknight favorite dinner dish!

I also like to add even more parmesan on top because I just can’t have too much parmesan!   You can sub frozen spinach in this, but make sure to thaw and drain before cooking.
