From time to time i'd like to share good recipes that i've come across and liked. iIm always interested in finding new recipes and think others might be as well. Enjoy!
Ingredients

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions, drain, and return it to the pot. Heat broiler.
  2. Add the artichoke hearts, spinach, Parmesan, half the mozzarella, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the pasta and toss to combine.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a shallow 2-quart (or 8-inch square) broilerproof baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella. Broil until the cheese is browned in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.

How funny! I saw this recipe on Real Simple yesterday when I was scouring for something to make. I love that you picked this. I went with the chicken curry, but this is coming home with me for a later date. :)
