Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Pasta

with Parmesan and cavatappi

$9.95 per serving

Sometimes, a classic appetizer deserves a promotion. We've done it with Buffalo flavors and now, we're elevating the gooey goodness of spinach and artichoke dip, the kind scarfed down with crackers and pita bread. Here, cavatappi pasta does our starch work for us and, boy, are we proud of the results. Rich, creamy, and delightful, we're giving this dish a raise and a bonus.

    Cook the Spinach

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes (to taste) to hot pan and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add spinach and cook, stirring often, until just wilted, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate and let sit 1-2 minutes to remove excess moisture.

    Make the Sauce

    Return pot used to cook pasta to medium heat. Add cream and pasta water and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until reduced by half, 2-3 minutes. Remove pot from burner and stir in cream cheese and half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for topping pasta) until combined. Season with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Add cooked pasta, spinach, and artichokes. Stir to coat evenly in sauce.
