This is a two for one post, I will show you how I made baked artichoke dip for the super bowl and then used the leftovers for a quick weeknight pasta dinner.
This could not be easier...
Assemble your ingredients.
I have this great plunger style measuring cup thanks to my sister's efforts with Pampered Chef. It really is useful when you are working with things like honey, peanut butter and mayo.
You pull the plunger down to the appropriately marked measurment and load it full of your food stuff
Press the plunger up from the bottom and give it a scrape! So easy!
I had never worked with canned artichokes before. They are very wet and even after draining the can I gave each one a squeeze to get out the excess moisture.
If you have a mini chopper you can certainly use it. As this was the first time working with the artichokes I really wanted to hand chop them to get a feel for their texture and firmness, etc.
Everything into a bowl and mix it up!
I made this a few hours ahead of time and just dropped it in my small dutch oven
and into the fridge it went until 20 minutes before serving.
I preheated the oven and popped it in for 20 minutes and it came out gooey, bubbly and delicious.
I served it with tortilla chips. The SO tried it but did not like it so I ended up with leftovers. I realized there was no reason why this could not be revived on a little bit of pasta so when I got home from work Monday that is just what I made.
I got the water on
dragged out the leftover dip
I threw in some more of the specialty pasta my sister got me and then mixed it all up once the pasta was done. Reserve a tiny bit of pasta water to mix in if it doesn't combine nicely.
It was VERY good and so fast and easy.
I drank this during the big game...
Did you make anything good for the game or have something good to drink?
