I absolutely love the spinach & artichoke combo (check out my Savory Spinach & Artichoke Bread Pudding! So Good!). I made this baked pasta dish today for Christmas Eve but of course made a small dish for myself so I can try it. Let me tell ya, this is delicious! I am always put in charge of the non fish dish for Christmas Eve and generally stick to a baked pasta dish because they aren't complicated and I have plenty of cooking for Christmas Day. I've done a butternut squash lasagna and a roasted veggie lasagna in the past, both delicious but I wanted to do something different this year.
Seeing as I'm on a spinach & artichoke kick I figured why not make a baked pasta! This is made with a short pasta, sautéed garlic, shallots, spinach and artichoke and tossed with a simple béchamel sauce with mozzarella and grated pecorino romano. Rich and creamy, so yummy! Give this one a try soon, great for a crowd!
