I actually cooked tonight! We can’t remember the last time I did, I mean from a Recipe…not just Chicken breasts or something like that…I love to cook, but lately there has not been enough hours in the day…but the goal is to make more time for me, Nick and my family…I actually miss not cooking…so I decided you might be in the same boat or maybe you need a new recipe to try…I love pasta and this one doesn’t seem so bad for us! Limit the red pepper flakes if you don’t like a little kick, it’s just a little…not overwhelming at all…
1 box Penne pasta
1lb of boneless chicken breasts, cut up in small chunks
1 box of frozen chopped spinach-unthawed and drained of all excess water-i lay it between paper towels and press all the water out.
1 can diced Italian style tomatoes
1 14oz jar of Alfredo sauce-can use light-the recipe called for 2 I only used 1
1 8oz can of tomato sauce
8oz of sliced mushrooms
red pepper flakes
Boil noodles with a nice dash of pepper flakes
Cook chicken with a little oil browning it a little. Set aside.
Sautee mushrooms with a little butter.
In a large sauce pan combine, alfredo sauce, tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, spinach and more red pepper flakes. Simmer on low until everything is heated through…do not scorch, watch carefully.
In a large serving bowl, mix noodles, chicken and sauce, stirring well.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with garlic bread…
Hope you love it like Nick and I did…Nick had two servings and we have some nice leftovers, so I would say it made about 6 servings.
Nick stated that it had great flavor but I needed to work a little more on my presentation…guess i shouldn’t have used the plastic plates and he needs to quit watching “Chopped”.
