Meatless Monday: Spinach + Artichoke Pasta {Gluten Free, Vegan}


 

Spinach + Artichoke Pasta {Gluten Free, Vegan}

Happy Meatless Monday, again! I don’t know about you but the weekend flew by pretty quickly for me! 

Friday I celebrated my sister’s birthday, Saturday consisted of representing the Ragnar Relay series at our local triathlon followed by a fundraiser for my Ragnar team then Sunday was made up of a 15 mile long run and Father’s Day festivities! 

Speaking of Ragnar- I have something awesome to share soon that you won’t want to miss! It has more to do with training and less to do with food but all this running I have going on does make me hungry….which has everything to do with food and today’s recipe post! :)

I know that was sort of a weak spin but stay with me here.  For whatever reason (okay, because of running), I have been CRAVING the combo of spinach and artichoke lately.  Instead of resorting to the traditional cheese laden, unhealthy dip, I decided to eliminate the dairy and make it into a yummy pasta dish instead. 

Spinach Artichoke Dip {Gluten Free, Vegan}

I replaced the dairy cheese with Daiya, loaded it with fresh spinach, whole artichokes and mixed it all in with gluten free fusilli pasta.
