Bacon-Spinach-Artichoke Spaghetti

This is the Spaghetti version of my Bacon Artichoke & Spinach Fettuccine recipe. Aside from the obvious pasta difference, I used cream cheese in this recipe instead of cream. A creamy pasta dish with spinach, artichoke hearts, and bacon is always a hit in our family.

Bacon-Spinach-Artichoke Spaghetti


  • 1 box spaghetti noodles cook al dente
  • water for boiling pasta
  • 3-5 strips bacon chopped
  • 1 bag baby spinach
  • 1 can/jar artichoke hearts drain water
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 sm onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled, chopped
  • sprinkle of Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 brick cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups reserved pasta water
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup ground parmesan cheese + extra to sprinkle on plate


  • Boil water in a pot to cook the fettuccine, al dente. Reserve 3 cups of the pasta water before draining.
  • In a sauté pan, brown the bacon pieces. Transfer in a bowl then set aside.
  • Add the chopped onions and garlic to sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the spinach to wilt.
  • Transfer in a bowl then set aside.
  • Melt butter into the pan.
  • Add cream cheese, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese. Season with Italian seasoning, salt and black pepper.  Stir in to soften the cream cheese for a couple of minutes or so. 
  • Add the pasta water. Keep stirring to incorporate the water with the cheeses.
  • Add the artichoke hearts. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the spaghetti noodles.
  • Then the cooked spinach and cooked bacon.
  • VOILA!

You can use any type of pasta with this dish. Enjoy!
