Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom Pasta from the Betty Crocker site!

Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom Pasta

You Need:


8
oz spaghetti, cooked, reserving 1/3 cup pasta water
2
tablespoons butter
5
oz sliced mushrooms
1
small onion, finely chopped
1 1/2
cups loosely packed spinach
3
to 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2
tablespoons flour
1
cup half-and-half
3/4
cup cubed, cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works great)
2
tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt
Pepper
1/3
cup reserved pasta water

To Make:

  • 1In large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Cook mushrooms, onions and spinach in butter until vegetables are softened and spinach is wilted, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • 2Stir in garlic. Add the flour and stir for 1 minute until the pasty taste cooks off. Add the half-and-half and stir slowly as sauce thickens. Add the chicken to skillet; cook until hot, stirring occasionally. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3Add cooked spaghetti and reserved pasta water. Stir to combine.

Tips:

Shrimp would be a great substitute for the chicken, and asparagus also works well in place of the spinach.

Serves: 4

I made this for dinner tonight, and it was awesome!  Next time I make it, I'll probably follow the suggestion of using asparagus instead of spinach.  The spinach was great, but I'd love to experiment with this recipe.
