    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Cook spaghetti in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a 2 litre baking dish, whisk together egg, milk and soured cream. Using a wooden spoon, stir in spinach, artichoke hearts, Cheddar cheese, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and cooked spaghetti. Season with minced onion, salt and pepper. Top with a sprinkling of paprika and remaining Parmesan cheese.
    3. Cover, and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove cover, and bake for another 15 minutes. Let stand 2 minutes before serving.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    nice flavor, might want to try chopped spinach next time, the spinach did not mix together well with the other ingrediants.  -  06 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i changed the spagetti to ziti and made a world of difference.my whole family LOVED it  -  07 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I can't honestly rate this recipe because I made several alterations. I didn't want another spagetti noodle recipe so I made it with ZITI. I also STEAMED my own SPINACH and added MUSHROOMS and fresh diced TOMATOES (which gave a juicy burst of flavor, I'll add more next time). I couldn't find artichoke hearts canned so I didn't bother. I also used ITALIAN 5 CHEESE BLEND to give it more parmesan flavor. I SAUTED fresh ONION and GARLIC that I had on hand and also put those in instead. I also didn't have paprika. So..with the changes I made....I LOVED IT and my family enjoyed it as well. I will definatly make again with my alterations and maybe throw in some chicken for the carnivore in the family. Thanks for the base for a tasty dish!  -  14 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
