    Absolutely delicious! This dish tastes like something you would get in a restaurant - actually, better than a restaurant! Everyone raved about it! The creamy tomato sauce is so yummy, and I would recommend using about 2 cups of pasta instead and about half the amount of spinach. I will be making this time and time again!! The leftovers were great, too (if you have any!).

    With the addition of some spices that my family prefer, this recipe was easy to make and very good.

    Just made this dish. It rocks! I did tweak it a bit by marinating chicken with Italian seasonings and garlic pepper for about 30 minutes and then sauté it with one medium onion and a tsp. of red pepper flakes. And yes, it does need 2 cups of uncooked pasta. Then added about 4 cups loosely packed spinach. Will definitely make again.
