Spinach Artichoke Lasagna

This lasagna is basically like someone took a delicious, creamy spinach artichoke dip and layered it with cheese and pasta. Then baked it til it was warm and bubbly. It's SO good!! Perfect for company!

So excited to share this decadent twist on lasagna with you today. It’s basically like someone took a delicious, creamy spinach artichoke dip and layered it with cheese and pasta. Then baked it til it was warm and bubbly. It’s fabulous! It’s the perfect dinner for guests and family.

You’ll be surprised at how easy and fresh it is to make, too.

Here’s all you need: baby spinach, artichoke hearts, oven-ready lasagna, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, flour, butter, and milk. Oh, and salt and pepper!

You can totally use shredded Parmesan cheese from a bag here, but I bought a block of Parmesan and used my KitchenAid Slicer/Shredder Attachment. I seriously love this thing, especially for Parmesan cheese. It works great for any kind of cheese, but Parmesan is just so hard to shred by hand. Homemade shredded cheese has so much more flavor, but who has time for that? This attachment has been worth every penny because it works so fast. Plus Parmesan freezes REALLY well, so I just use what I need for a recipe and freeze the rest in a freezer Ziploc bag. Then I can pull it out whenever I need it and have fresh Parmesan cheese any time.

First combine the baby spinach leaves and drained artichoke hearts in a food processor until smooth and creamy. If you don’t have a food processor, you can roughly chop the spinach leaves and artichoke hearts with a sharp knife.

Next melt the butter and garlic in a large pot (I used a dutch oven) over medium heart. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes. Whisk in milk, salt, and pepper. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Add Parmesan cheese and stir until melted.
