Healthy 3-Ingredient Spinach Artichoke Side Dish

Creamy, rich flavor in a side dish you can feel good about feeding your family! I love it when healthy tastes good! 

What makes this recipe over-the-top on the must-make-again scale is that it has just THREE ingredients. You can whip it up in about 10 minutes! Seriously!

Here's the starring line-up: Neufchatel cheese, marinated artichoke hearts, and frozen chopped spinach! That is it!

Healthy, 3-Ingredient Spinach Artichoke Side Dish
Serves 6-8

16 ounce package frozen chopped spinach
1 cup of marinated artichoke hearts, drained slightly
4 ounces Neufchatel cheese (cream cheese works), cut into 1/2-ounce chunks

1. Place artichoke hearts in a blender or food processor, and pulse until chopped small--almost a puree.
2. Cook spinach in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until defrosted. Add chopped artichoke hearts to spinach and increase heat to medium-high, stirring often. 
3. Once boiling, add Neufchatel cheese, reduce heat to low, and cover.
4. Cook 2-4 more minutes, stirring cheese in as it melts.  Serve warm.
