Creamy Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake

The original recipe is from mylifewellloved.com but I made a few changes. This was such an easy and yummy meal! I actually made double the recipe and took one load to some friends who just had a baby – a great meal to share with others since it’s all in one dish and easy to reheat!

Chicken spinach bake

 

8oz cooked rigatoni pasta (or really any kind!)

Olive oil

Clove of garlic, minced/chopped finely

Half an onion, chopped

3 or 4 handfuls of fresh spinach, torn up

About 3 cups of cooked chicken, shredded

14oz can of diced tomatoes

8oz packet of cream cheese, softened

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Salt, Pepper

– Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. 

Saute the garlic and onion in olive oil until soft. In a large bowl combine the onion, garlic, pasta, spinach, cream cheese, tomatoes, seasoning and chicken. 

Transfer to an oven proof dish and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top. Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10-15 minutes more until cheese is golden and bubbling. 

Enjoy with some good bread!
