Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: I was thinking of a different recipe idea when I went to my pantry to get started. Staring back at me was a jar of marinated artichokes, and an epiphany. So, I scrapped my plans for a meal with black beans, and came up with what seemed like an obvious winner. The creaminess of the goat cheese pairs well with the spinach and artichoke, and it all goes beautifully with mashed potatoes. To make it a full meal, I went all out and served it with a delicious and simple shrimp scampi.
