Spinach Artichoke Baked Pasta

I found another delicious recipe through pinterest. It's from Budget Savvy Diva. I made it when we had friends over for dinner last week and everyone loved it! I LOVE spinach artichoke dip so I just had to try this pasta.

What You Need
14 oz of Orecchiette Pasta -- I couldn't find this and just used a 12 oz box of farfalle (bowtie) pasta, basically just a short noodle!
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Cup of Chopped Onion
3 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
1 Cup of Sour Cream
4 oz of Cream Cheese (at room temperature)
3/4 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
10 Oz of Spinach (thawed and excess water squeezed out)
13.5 oz Can of Artichoke Hearts (rinsed and chopped)
1 Cup of Mozzarella cheese

What You Do
Preheat Oven To 425
Cook pasta according to directions on the box. When pasta is done and you go to drain it, save 1/4 cup of the water!
Heat oil in pan and saute onions (8 – 10 minutes on medium) Add garlic and cook for one more minute.
In a large bowl mix sour cream, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, onions, and garlic.
Add cooked pasta to the bowl and mix together.
Stir in spinach, artichokes, 1/4 cup of cooking liquid from the pasta, and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Sprinlke a little bit of salt and pepper on in too, stir all together!
Place mixture into greased 2.5 – 3 qt casserole dish and sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of mozarella cheese on top.

Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
