I'm always on the search for great pasta dishes, especially quick, week-night type dishes that can be thrown together in less then 30 minutes.
Here's another great recipe from one of my favorite blogs. Jenny from Picky Palate is always creating the best dishes that are kid (and adult) friendly. I often look to her recipes for inspiration in my own kitchen. This recipe was yet another winner in my house and I think you will enjoy it too!
Chicken Florentine Bowtie Pasta
(adapted from Picky Palate)
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
4 cups fresh baby spinach, washed
2 cups cooked boneless chicken, shredded or cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
2 containers of Philadelphia Cooking Creme
1 box bowtie pasta
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (I used reduced-fat 2% milk)
Grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
Cook pasta to al-dente according to package directions. Drain.
In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Add the chicken, salt, and pepper and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.
Turn off the heat and add the Cooking Creme. Stir well.
