I start by cooking my pasta in a stockpot while cubing my chicken and quickly cooking it in a skillet.

Then, once it has cooked, I remove it to a bowl as I prepare my cream sauce.

I drain my pasta and toss it into the cream sauce, making sure get as much of that cream sauce goodness on the noodles as possible. Then, the chicken goes back into the skillet, along with a few hands full of fresh spinach, salt and pepper and voila, supper is ready!

I love recipes like that!

  1. Could u please tell how the cream sauce was made?

    • Hi Binty! This worked for me. Under ingredients, I clicked on the green words roasted red pepper cream sauce. I got an error #404, then scrolled down until I saw sauces, clicked on that and found the recipe. Hope this helps.

  2. The roasted red pepper cream sauce link isn’t work for me. It takes me to an error message. Just thought you’d want to know.
