Chicken Pasta with Baby Spinach
Recipe type: chicken
  • 500 grams fresh pasta (I buy this from the supermarket, either Latina if it is on special or San Remo. The kids like the spinach and ricotta filled types best.)
  • 690 mls Pasta Tomato Sauce (Coles does a great organic basic one)
  • 2 chicken breast fillets, diced
  • 150 grams baby spinach leaves
  • Olive Oil
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese
  1. I like to cook the sauce first and then boil the pasta up just before we eat. I will often make the sauce in the morning and reheat it at dinner time. However as it is a pretty quick sauce, the pasta can be cooked about half way through the sauce cooking process.
  2. Dice the chicken into small pieces.
  3. Add oil to a saucepan/frying pan and when at a medium heat add chicken and brown.
  4. Once chicken is cooked, add the pasta sauce to the pan and reduce heat to simmering.
  5. Cook pasta as per packet instructions and drain well.
  6. Place pasta into bowls and then add a handful of baby spinach leaves to each.
  7. Spoon sauce on top of the baby spinach, then top with shaved Parmesan and cracked pepper as desired.
