Pink photo in honor of breast cancer awareness - thursdays the month of october - check out soulaperture and pink thoughts!
This dish got me through many a night with young kids. I think I copied it out of a Child magazine when the kids were wee ones, I was breast feeding and just needed something quick and comforting. I do remember those days, sore, tired, feeling like my body wasn't mine anymore. Now when I am sore, tired and feeling like my body isn't mine anymore its because I worked out too hard. Time is a funny thing.
Have a great Thursday!
creamy chicken pasta (child magazine)
2 cups pasta - penne
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts - sliced into pieces
2 cups chicken broth
1 9 oz pkg cream cheese
1 9 oz pkg frozen spinach (thawed and drained) - or I like fresh - just blanched!
1-2 cloves garlic minced
salt and pepper - red pepper flakes if you want it a little spicy
Saute chicken in olive oil until brown add garlic and saute for 2 min more. Add chicken broth and scrap bottom of pan. Let boil then add cream cheese and spinach. Heat for 5 min or so until cream cheese melts. Add cherry tomatoes and cook for 3 -4 minutes. Toss with cooked pasta and serve with parmesan cheese to the side. Thin with broth or wine if it gets too think.
