Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz pasta, cook as directed to al dente
  • 1 TBSP unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes,
  • 1 TBSP all purpose flour
  • cups milk, I used 1%
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 7 oz artichoke heart quarters, chopped
  • 4 oz cream cheese, cubed
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese, cubed
  • ¼ cup pasta water
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • salt & pepper, for seasoning

Instructions
 

  • Cook the pasta to al dente in salted water. Note: reserve ½ cup of pasta water for finishing the pasta.
  • Melt the butter on medium heat and once melted, add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, ~2 minutes.
  • Add the artichoke hearts and stir together. Salt & pepper, as desired.
  • Add the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes. Don't worry if the flour sticks to the bottom because it will release when the milk is added.
  • Add the milk and Worcestershire sauce and stir until thickened.
  • Add the cheeses and continue to stir, allowing the cheeses to melt. Add ¼ cup of reserved pasta water. If the sauce looks too thick, add additional pasta water. Note: If you're using frozen spinach add it in this step.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the artichoke cheese sauce and combine together. Cook together for 3 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and add the fresh spinach. Salt the fresh spinach, if desired.
  • Combine the spinach with the other ingredients.
  • Serve warm, enjoy and cheers 🥂
