Spinach Artichoke Pasta

A down shot of Spinach Artichoke Pasta in a bowl.

Two of my favorite things in the whole wide world are Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip and One Skillet Meals only because I totally hate doing dishes.

One Skillet Spinach Artichoke Pasta combines both of those with a gluten free option using brown rice noodles instead of regular pasta ( I promise no one will know it's GF). It's incredible with regular pasta or gluten free!

It's cheesyliciousness at it's best and filled with lots of spinach and artichoke hearts leaving my taste buds singing for more!

Colt nabbed the leftovers for lunch and said he almost thought it was even better the next day because the flavors had melded.

This is comfort food at its prime and done in under 30 minutes.

It's like a little taste of heaven in every bite!
