So I came here today with every intention to tell you about this awesome pasta.
instead I’m going to tell you about my neighbor who is kinda annoying. Okay SUPER annoying.
They leaving their water running all night and it drips through my ceiling and gets my stuff all wet. I knocked on his door at 5 AM.
Let’s just say he wasn’t very happy… Lets just say I’m not happy that are not smart. Let’s just say I remember the party you had and your friend puked all over the building. EW.
Sooo I love spinach and artichokes and spinach artichoke dip it’s my favorite dip ever really.
I made this to be sorta healthy I thought after the holidays I’d take short break and make something healthy-ish.
I also have a new project I want to share with you guys.
My new project I’m going to call it my everyday life. It will make use my camera everyday I will be taking pictures through the week and sharing me week with you guys so you can know me just a little more. But more like pictures of what I think makes my life special to me any how. Maybe you guys should do it! or try it too!
Spinach and Artichoke Linguine
Serves about 4 takes about 30 minutes to make
1/2 pound whole wheat linguine
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 shallots or 1 small onion, diced (optional. I didn’t use them.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 ounces fresh spinach
1 (12-ounce) jar of marinated artichokes, drained and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup ricotta cheese ( I used low-fat)
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
3 tablespoons cream cheese (I used low-fat)
Bring water to a boil and prepare pasta according to directions. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and add olive oil and butter. Add in shallots, salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes, just until soft. Add in spinach and toss well to coat, stirring until completely wilted, then add in garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add in artichokes and stir, cooking for another 5 minutes so everything is warm. Stir in ricotta, cream cheese and parmesan, mixing until combined.
