The base of the recipe is ground beef and then layers in the cream cheese and parmesan cheese to bring all the flavors of the dip to life. I use a rotini pasta however, any pasta could be used with this sauce.

Cook the ground beef and thawed spinach together in a sauté pan. I have used fresh spinach before. However, I find that the frozen thawed spinach is easier to work with.

Brown the ground beef with the spinach and the garlic. This base will be the start of the spinach pasta. Next layer in the cream cheese and mayo. The cream cheese will melt down. Stir often.

After adding the mayo and cream cheese this is when the artichoke hearts are layered into the artichoke pasta. I drain the artichoke hearts before adding them to the pasta.

Now add in some heavy whipping cream to create a nice sauce that will stick to the rotini pasta. Hence I use the parmesan and mozzarella cheese to thicken the sauce.
