I would not make this again. For the calories per serving (over 700) it's very bland. In addition, the recipe calls for too many noodles and the lack of thickening agent to the heavy cream just makes it soupy. Nothing adheres to the noodles (we used penne). Stay away from this one in my opinion.
This was a hit tonight. Needed a little more salt. Used leftover Sam's Club chicken (the best store bought in my opinion). Spinach and peas not enough. Will add more next time. Fresh cracked pepper when serving and topped it with halved grape tomatoes and lots of Parmesan. WOW. Six stars!
This was a good base recipe for a creamy pasta dish. I made a few changes and it tasted really yummy :) Instead of rotisserie chicken, I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs seasoned with salt, pepper, and parmesan. I cooked the chicken in a skillet first and then used the same skillet for the cream and veggie mixture. To this mixture I added mushrooms, parmesan, and red pepper, a bit of cayenne, freshly ground nutmeg, and crushed red pepper flakes. The rest was as in the original recipe. Mmmmmmm.....
OK for a standard weeknight meal. Not too exciting, but easy enough.
I agree! We had to add pepper flakes to add flavor. We're definitely not going to make this a regular dish.
This was a big hit! Poached chicken cutlets previously and then shredded. Also cooked the pasta ahead of time, so it was easy to then just add everything together. Used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. The parmesan is essential when serving. Yum !
What could you use instead of spinach? My husband will not eat spinach. Also, what is the red in the picture? I don't see anything in the recipe that would indicate red.
I would not make this again. It was very bland except for the seasoning that was on the chicken.
I tried the Creamy Chicken & Spinach Pasta and it was very well-seasoned and totally delicious; however, it seems that 3/4 of a pound of noodles may have been a little too much. It did not turn out as pretty as your picture. I will make it again. My husband even liked it and he's not usually a pasta guy. Thanks.
