This time of year is so busy! With the holidays, school activities, and gatherings, it can seem to be overwhelming to say the least. I can never seem to catch a break and trying to balance everything can be difficult. I try so hard to cook some delicious meals during the week for my family. It is nice to just slow down and sit together and enjoy a nice casserole and talk about life. This ends up being my favorite time of the day. Sitting down for 20 minutes together before my boys have to run out the door to scouts or other activities.

If you love spinach artichoke dip you are going to go crazy for this casserole. Spinach artichoke dip is one of my favorite dips and I could probably eat it all in one sitting!

My perfect creamy alfredo sauce mixed with pasta, chicken, artichokes, and spinach made an absolute delicious result!

This made the list of one of the best casseroles that I have made! I know that your family will love it just as much as we did! 🙂

  1. Love chicken and artichokes! That being said, this recipe has too much pasta and not enough chicken. I used an entire rotisserie chicken and it just didn’t seem to be enough. When I make it again will only use half the pasta. I used plain quartered artichokes, not marinated. The sauce is quite rich. Like the fact that this can be made ahead of time
