Be sure to use gluten free pasta if you are following a gluten free diet. If you aren’t a fan of baked pastas you can skip step 5 and eat this straight from the skillet following step 4. To save more time, you can use leftover cooked chicken. Stir in the cooked chicken when you add the artichokes.

Cooking MethodCasserole


  • 12 ounces chicken, chopped into small pieces
  • 8 ounces short pasta, such as ziti
  • 10 ounces frozen spinach, defrosted and drained
  • 1 can quartered artichoke hearts (14 ounces), drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the pasta one minute shy of the package instructions, then toss it with olive oil or nonstick spray and set it aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skille, over a medium high heat, add the chicken with a tablespoon of oil and salt and pepper to taste then sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the chicken just starts to brown on all sides then push the chicken to one side of the pan.
  3. Add the spinach and garlic to the empty space in the pan and sauté for 2 minutes. If the pan gets too dry, add a few tablespoons of water as needed.
  4. Add the artichokes and stir to combine, then add the milk, sour cream, cheddar, cream cheese, mayo, and pecorino Romano cheese and stir allowing the cheeses to melt and blend together. Simmer slowly for 2 minutes, then stir in the cooked pasta and simmer for another minute to blend all the ingredients.
  5. Pour the contents of the pan into a greased baking dish and top with grated cheese and paprika and place under the broiler for 2 to 5 minutes or until the top is golden and crispy.
