What We Eat Wednesday: Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Noodle Bake!

Welcome to What We Eat Wednesday! Here is an easy weeknight dinner for you and your family. I call it “Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Noodle Bake” or something like that. It’s pretty quick, and is very delicious! Let’s get cookin’!
Ingredients:
-14oz Box Rigatoni Noodles
-3 cups broccoli (cooked)

-2 cups spinach (cooked/drained)

-1 can (10-14oz) small artichokes (finely chopped)
-1 can diced tomatoes (drained)
-2 cups shredded cheese
-Crushed Red Peppers (as desired)
-“Prego” or any other brand 3 cheese artisan blend white sauce
**You could add cut up chicken breast as well**

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cook broccoli, spinach, and set aside. Cook your noodles (according to directions on box). In a separate medium/large sauce pan heat white sauce. Add to sauce, broccoli, artichokes, spinach, diced tomatoes, and crushed red peppers. Heat on medium about 5 minutes (or until tender). 
When your noodles are done cooking, strain and put in a 9x13in. oven safe baking dish, add your sauce and stir mixing all contents completely. Sprinkle your shredded cheese to top and pop er’ in the oven! Cook about 15 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe. It is a great family favorite dinner, also a good dish to make for your vegetarian guests.
Quick Addie Update!
Also worth mentioning, our little Adeline is 6 months old today! I can't believe it, she is growing up way to fast. She is sitting up on her own! She isn't quite crawling yet, but definitely attempting to, she some how moves from point A to point B but there's not much of a method to it. Haha. She loves eating baby food, her favorites are apples for breakfast and peas for dinner.
Bon appetit,
