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.

  1. This recipe was so YUMMY! Will definitely make it again! And again and again πŸ™‚

  2. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

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

  3. 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:)

      Sounds yummy!! I hope you enjoyed it Cathy (and hubby did too)

        By the way it turned out great with the low fat ricotta! All agreed it’s a keeper?. Thank you.

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

    • Drizzle Reply

      Glad you enjoy it, and good idea with the chicken πŸ™‚

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

    • Drizzle Reply

      Glad you enjoyed it Nikki, and yes definitely can bulk it up by adding some chicken πŸ™‚

  6. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, I measure my pasta uncooked, I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

    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..

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

      • Denise Sowder Reply

        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!

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

    • Drizzle Reply

      I hope you enjoy it, it’s a simple dish that you can add in any extra veggies to bulk it up πŸ™‚

  11. 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

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes to frozen spinach, and yes definitely cut up the artichoke to smaller pieces, unless they are already small . so glad your enjoying the recipes πŸ™‚

  12. I LOVE this recipe and so does my husband and son. They ask for it every week! Served with chicken souvlaki skewers 😍.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Kathy, that’s awesome, so glad you all enjoy it πŸ™‚

  13. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  14. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      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™‚

  15. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Lucy, yes sure you can.. I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚
