This is kind of an all in one, veggie, lean protein, and definitely the heavy cream food group! I hope you enjoy this quickie! (teehee) Sorry, that was completely inappropriate, but, hey..........*shrugs*
Make this in a large pot, something with a lid. TIP: IF you have a ginormous pot that you have no lid for, whether you lost it, broke it, used it as a weapon in a murder case, etc.......use a pizza pan upside down for a lid!
You will need:
1 T. butter
2 lg chicken breasts cut into bite sized chunks, uncooked
1/4 tsp (heaping) minced garlic
3 cups chicken stock
12 oz. bow tie pasta
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup good grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 cups fresh spinach (NOT frozen)
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot melt your butter. Add in cut up chicken and stir often, until the chicken is nearly cooked through. Add in garlic and pepper and stir for 1 minute.
Cover, and reduce heat to simmer for the time that is suggested on your pasta package. Now, TWO minutes before the timer goes off, uncover, stir, add in heavy cream and Parmesan cheese and stir to combine.
Add the halved tomatoes and toss. Let sit for 2-3 minutes before serving. Serve this with some toasty, roasty, crunch bread!
