What you need for this Artichoke Pasta Recipe
Pasta: I use penne, but you can do spaghetti, rigatoni or any other that you like.
I used canned artichoke hearts, because these are widely available and taste great. You can also use frozen artichoke hearts, but keep in mind to thaw them before.
Garlic and olive oil are here to add a good amount of flavor.
Non dairy cream cheese: In my gusto it is just the ticket when making creamy sauces. I use them often like in my Creamy Mac and Cheese.
Oat milk is here to thin out our sauce, but you can easily use almond, cashew, soy or any other type of milk that you prefer.
Dairy free parmesan cheese: Makes everything so cheesy and delicious. You can use your favorite or make my Vegan Parmesan Cheese (3 ingredients, 1 min).
Finally spinach adds a fresh component and great texture.
