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!

    I LOVED this recipie. Super taste! Super Easy! I added a bullion cube in the sauce for more flaver. My husband is a Spanish fishing captain who goes out to sea 4 months at a time. He loved it too! He will be taking this recipie out to sea with him.

    Excellent recipe! I made a double batch to freeze before baby comes. It is a super easy meal that is warm and hearty. I’m definitely looking forward to eating this after our baby is born!

    1. Hi Jessie,
      I’m happy you liked this! It is a great meal for making ahead! Best wishes for the birth of your baby! That is such a precious, special time! xo

  3. If i freeze this should i freeze the chicken seoarately or can the whole dish be frozen together.  How best to thaw and re-heat?
