Spinach and artichoke pasta bake

March 14, 2016

I was lying in bed the other night thinking how good my spinach and artichoke pizza fingers are and that I really should make them again soon… Then I thought wait a minute… I should make a casserole dish based of the same recipe.. so this delicious spinach and artichoke pasta dish was created and man is it ever so tasty! Serves 6 at 6 freestyle smart points per serving.

    Hi. This looks delish. I can’t seem to find low calorie mayonaise in Australia. It’s not on the WW food list either. Or at least the Australian one. Will light mayonaise be the same points wise?

      Yes, light mayo would be the same πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy it

    I’ve got this dish in the oven as I write this. Looks & smells so good! I had to improvise. First of all I doubled it, hubby will be home soon & 2 cups between 4 adults won’t cut it but that’s fine. I’ll measure my portion. I didn’t have enough cream cheese but luckily had some low fat ricotta in the fridge! So I changed that up. I’ll think it might even be less points. I’ll have to do the math:)

    This is wonderful. I add cooked chicken sometimes to make it a main meal.

    This was amazing! It was hard to not go back for seconds. I like the thought someone had of adding chicken, too. Delicious!

    Hi,

    I am planning on making this recipe, but am confused – do I measure 2 cups of dry pasta and then cook it, or is it two cups of cooked pasta?

    I tried this recipe and then put it into the Weight Watchers recipe builder. I entered the ingredients as shown and it came up with 10 points for 6 servings. It was good but there is not enough of a serving for me for 10 points!

      Hi Denise, I can’t always promise that your products/brands are going to be the same as mine, so what you enter in your App could be different than what I used, you could be in the U.S and I am in Canada and products vary so there could always be different point values showing, hope that makes sense..

      To add to my above reply, make sure it did not give you a point value for the artichoke, and your pasta and my pasta could be different in points.. Pasta brands can vary so much

        Thanks for the reply. I will just have to put into recipe builder with my products to check out the points. I used a 4 SP for 2oz pasta so I don’t think it was the pasta!

    This sounds delicious. I’m thinking about adding some diced tomatoes to the mix before baking. πŸ™‚

    Could you use frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained and I will be using Trader Joes canned artichokes Do you have to chop artichokes. Thanks for all your good recipes.. I love trying them on my family

    This is delicious! My kids asked to have this every night lol. I added 3 Jenny O sweet Italian sausages sliced and mixed in. That adds 3 SP making it 9 SP per one serving out of 6.

      Hi Anna, wow that is awesome your kids love it πŸ™‚ I think it’s a great idea to bulk it up with some meat

    This is delicious! I am a vegetarian so I love it when you post these types of meals. I just leave out the meat when I make your other recipes, add lots more veggies and they all taste great too.

      Hi Kim, I’m so glad you enjoy it and yes it’s usually just a matter of leaving out the meat for most of my casserole type dishes.. I’m glad you can make them work for you πŸ™‚

    I can’t wait to make this as a side dish for Christmas Eve but I’m wondering can I use regular fat cream cheese, mayo and sour cream? Would it mess up the recipe?
