How do you make Spinach Dip Baked Pasta?

The inspiration for this dish came when I was eating my favorite Trader Joe’s spinach dip. It’s insanely good with anything from crackers to toasted bread or on sandwiches. But it got me thinking it would be super creamy and good on hot pasta as an easy dinner food hack. If you like spinach artichoke dip, you could easily add artichoke hearts to this dish too!

We kept it simple this time by adding fresh chopped garlic and shredded parmesan cheese. Once you add the warm pasta, spinach dip, garlic, and cheese, bake until the cheese is toasty and melted. Each spoonful reminds you of that warm spinach dip flavor that is a crowd-pleaser. The fresh garlic here is a  MUST as it brings a freshness to refrigerated dip and makes it taste more homemade, and adds that zingy garlic flavor. We garnished the top with Italian parsley before serving but only because we had some lying around. The parsley makes the dish look even prettier with the vibrant green. You could definitely omit this garnish if you don’t have it around though.

What can I add to make this baked spinach pasta recipe better?

As mentioned above, if you want a more authentic spinach artichoke dip flavor, you could add artichoke hearts that come canned for easy prep. This baked pasta would be amazing with grilled chicken for added protein.  You could bring out the flavor of the spinach dip by adding water chestnuts which would add crunch and texture. If you wanted additional nutrition, you could add a handful of baby spinach or even frozen spinach would do! This spinach cheese pasta bake is super versatile and easy to whip up for a last minute family dinner. My kids absolutely loved it and that’s always a win too!

Notes

You may try other types of spinach dips other than Trader Joe's and they should work just fine. Or make your own and add to the pasta and bake. 
Due to the fat from sour cream and cheese added to dish, this pasta is best served immediately and does not reheat as well. You may still reheat and eat the following day, but note it will be greasier.
