Creamy Chicken, Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Pasta!!
Warning! This is NOT diet food! My poor husband is in a weight loss challenge with his co-workers and I have not been very nice with my choice of dinners. Although this meal is not diet friendly, it can be your taste buds best friend! I have to give myself a pat on the back with this one, I truly outdid myself! Haha! I love spinach artichoke dip, but don't get it often enough, usually only around super bowl party time. I decided to do a spin off of my original spinach artichoke dip and make a delightful dinner. I promise you will not be disappointed in this one!
