Spinach Artichoke Pasta

Being a Friday night, I knew I needed to make myself something good to eat after a long week of class. My sister and I found this recipe on Pinterest (as usual) and decided to try it out. It is super easy and barely cost us anything!

Here's what you need:
12 oz bow-tie pasta
1 tsp butter
8 oz fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 squeezed lemon juice
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
10 oz shredded spinach
14 oz artichoke hearts (cut in halves)
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
Here's what you do:
1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Melt butter in sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, add the cream cheese and stir until melted.
2. Slowly stir in the milk, then the sour cream, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
3. Lastly, stir in the artichokes, spinach, and parmesan cheese.
4. Drain the pasta and add to spinach-artichoke mix. Toss the two until thoroughly mixed.
5. Serve with additional parmesan and lemon juice, as desired.
The pasta was full of flavor and definitely hit the spot! It would definitely taste good with some baked chicken too. If you like spinach-artichoke dip, be sure to try this out! Happy Friday!!
