Recipe ~ Spinach Artichoke Casserole

This is one of my favorite "go to" recipes. It's quick, easy, healthy, delicious, and I have leftovers for lunch the next day! It's also possible to buy the ingredients ahead of time and just have them in the pantry for those nights when you come home tired and realize that you should have stopped by the grocery store on the way home from work..:-)


2/3 package egg noodles

1 jar pasta sauce

1 10oz package of frozen spinach

1 can of artichoke hearts

1.5 cups shredded cheese (I use 2% finely shredded, four cheese blend)

salt and pepper

Italian seasoning


Cook the egg noodles according to package directions and drain well

Defrost spinach in the microwave and then squeeze out excess water

Drain the artichoke hearts and chop coarsely

Layer ingredients in a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish as follows ~

Half of the noodles, half of the spinach, half of the artichoke hearts, half of the cheese, and sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Repeat, finishing with the cheese, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cover with foil.
  1. Bake at 375F for 30 minutes ~ or
  2. Can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator
Either way, eventually you will bake it at 375F for 30 minutes. Keep it covered in foil the whole time you cook to maintain the moisture so you don't dry it out.

Enjoy! C
