What else do you do when you’re snowed in than eat delicious food?! The boyfriend and I were trying to come up with foods to stock up on for the impending snow. He said he wanted Spinach and Artichoke Pasta. I heard something completely different, because, well, I’m usually only half listening to him! You feel me?!
Anyways, a light bulb went off and I was like, let’s put it in a puff pastry! BAM! These beauties were created and are now a repeat recipe!
-3/4 of a bag of baby spinach
-2 small jars marinated artichokes, drained
-1/2 red onion diced
-1/2 c parmesan Romano cheese
-1-8oz block of cream cheese
-1/4 c sour cream
-2 tbsp minced garlic
-1 tbsp olive oil
-1 sheet puff pastry
-salt and pepper to taste
-Preheat oven to 420 degrees.
-Sauté onions in olive oil in pan for a few minutes then add artichokes. As the onions are sautéing and the artichokes are heating up, kind of cut up the artichokes with your spatula into smaller pieces.
-Right before they’re done becoming soft, add the spinach, garlic and salt and pepper.
-Once the spinach is wilted, add the cream cheese, sour cream and HALF of the Parmesan Romano cheese.
-Cut the puff pastry in 12 equal sections using a pizza cutter. Put those in a greased cupcake pan.
-Spoon the spinach artichoke cheese mixture into the puff pastry.
-Top with remaining Parmesan Romano cheese.
-Bake for about 30 minutes until pastry is cooked all the way through. No soggy bottoms!
