A few years ago, my friend Audra invited all the girls over for dinner. She is a phenomenal cook, so when you get a dinner invite from Audra, you don’t turn it down. She made this pasta that was soooo yummy – I had to have the recipe. Once I saw how easy this dish was, I knew it would become one of my go-to dishes.
Easy Cheesy Pasta with Chicken, Spinach & Tomatoes
1 box of pasta (penne, bowtie, etc.)
1 large can of diced tomatoes with juice
2 8 oz. bags of shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 onion (more or less based on preference)
1/2 bag of fresh spinach
2 medium chicken breasts
Boil the pasta in salted water until al dente.
Cut the chicken and onion up into bite size pieces. Saute in butter and olive oil with the garlic until the onions are translucent and the chicken is cooked. Combine the pasta, chicken mix, cheese, can of tomatoes, and spinach in a large bowl until mixed well. Pour into a large baking dish and bake until slightly brown on the edges. Serve with some yummy bread & enjoy!
I adore this dish! It’s so easy to just throw together, but it tastes like you slaved over the stove for hours! So go ahead and tell everyone it took you hours – it will be our little secret, k? 😉
