I LOVE spinach artichoke dip, but also like to eat mostly dairy-free for hormone balance. Enter this creamy and luscious spinach artichoke pasta, which contains all the elements of that dip you love, but is healthy, balanced, and comes together super quickly thanks to the store-bought Kite Hill cream cheese. I usually buy this at Whole Foods, but if you can’t find it, try another plant-based cream cheese and mix in some finely chopped chives instead. The chive flavor is a favorite in our household and honestly goes great with just about anything in need of some creaminess. To add extra protein to this, use a legume-based pasta such as Banza.  Go ahead, lick the spoon when you’re done!
