Spinach Artichoke Mac & Cheese

Spinach Artichoke Mac & Cheese


This twist on mac & cheese might just take the cake though—the cream cheese makes for an EXTRA-creamy cheese sauce.
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 lb. pasta shells
  • 3 tbsp. butter, plus 2 tbsp. melted butter, plus more for greasing
  • 4 tbsp. cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3 c. milk (preferably whole)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 c. (8-oz.) blocks cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 3 c. shredded mozzarella
  • 1½ c. freshly grated Parmesan, divided
  • 2 (10-oz.) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 (15-oz.) cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Butter a 9"-x-13" baking dish. In a large pot of salted, boiling water, cook pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, melt 3 tablespoons butter. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Pour in milk and continue whisking until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Let simmer until slightly thickened, 2 minutes. Stir in cream cheese until melted.
  3. Remove pan from heat and whisk in mozzarella and 1 cup of Parmesan. Continue whisking until melted and smooth. Stir in spinach, artichoke, and cooked pasta and transfer to prepared baking dish.
  4. In a small bowl, combine remaining ½ cup Parmesan with panko and melted butter. Sprinkle mixture over macaroni.
