What's for Dinner 2/9/2011?

I really intended to add some new recipes I've tried out here... time gets away from me these days!

Last night I tried out this very simple recipe from one of my fave magazines Real Simple:

Cheesy Baked Pasta With Spinach and Artichokes



  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and return it to the pot.
  2. Add the artichoke hearts, spinach, Parmesan, 1 cup of the mozzarella, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the pasta and toss to combine.
  3. Heat broiler. Transfer the pasta mixture to a shallow 2-quart (or 8-inch square) broilerproof baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cup of mozzarella.
  4. Broil until the cheese is browned in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.

My only substitution... I added some finely chopped mushrooms and I used some fresh spinach that I had on hand (just sauteed a bit). It was DELICIOUS! Super easy, and very good. Try it sometime!
