In a medium (or large) pot, cook the fettuccine according to the package instructions.
While fettuccine is cooking; in a separate pan, heat olive oil over low heat. Then add spinach and cook until wilted. Cut artichoke quarters in half, then add to the spinach and cook on low heat an additional 90 seconds.
Once pasta is finished cooking, add the drained pasta to the pan with the spinach and artichokes. Toss with tongs until well combined. Remove from heat.
In a medium saucepan, cook the butter, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and milk on medium heat until butter and cream cheese are completely melted, whisking constantly.
Whisk in garlic powder, basil and pepper. Then, whisk in the Parmesan cheese and the flour.
Bring sauce to a simmer and continue to cook for 4 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
Pour sauce into pan with the Spinach-Artichoke Fettuccine and toss with tongs or stir until well combined.
Serve warm and enjoy!
Serve topped with shredded Parmesan and a light drizzle of fresh lemon juice.
Serve this pasta main dish with a mixed green salad for a quick-and-tasty weekday meal.
How to Thicken the Sauce
If you prefer a thicker sauce, stir in additional flour, 1 Tbsp. at a time, and cook until sauce is cooked to desired consistency.
Fresh artichokes can be used when available at your market/grocery store. They should be quartered and cooked a few extra minutes along with the spinach. If desired, they can be marinated in a seasoned olive oil before cooking as directed. For this recipe, I used jarred, marinated artichokes since they are readily available in supermarkets and are easier to use than fresh artichokes.
