“Tonight, I was desperate to use up the chicken and fresh spinach in my fridge. I didn't have much energy or time and I couldn't find anything I wanted to make. I took a chance and threw this together from what I had on hand and it turned out great! It can be as simple or as fancy as you want. My picky 5-year olds and husband enjoyed it (except the spinach), so that pretty much makes it a keeper.”

I made this for Sunday lunch, and it was my first experience cooking pasta in the sauce. I really appreciate having one less pot, especially on Sunday! I stayed very close to the recipe, only using chicken broth instead of water. I feel this is a great place to jump from, to customize to your family's tastes. For us, it was a bit bland, and would have benefited from some onions, from fresh garlic instead of powder, and from a bit of cream at the end to give the sauce some oomph. Overall, it is a solid recipe, and a great way to work in some veggies.

Thanks for the comment, Bibi! Great suggestions. (I had next to nothing in my house -- fresh garlic would be great!) This was my first time actually submitting a recipe to the public. I'm so glad it worked out for you.
