Promptly Prepared Pesto Penne with Chicken

Submitted by Susan Ruzzamenti

Serves 4-6

I always look for quick and easy meals to prepare when I get home from work. The already prepared pesto sauce makes things soooo easy and this dish tastes great! Add a green salad and some steamed zucchini and you have a healthy, filling meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (dry) FiberGourmet Light Penne Pasta
  • 1/4 clove garlic minced (or more to taste)
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms quartered
  • 2 large boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp Mrs. Dash Table Blend
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, stems removed
  • 1 small jar Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce (8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta per directions, drain and set aside.
  2. Spray a large skillet with Pam (or equivalent) olive oil spray. Add the mushrooms and garlic and saute over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
  3. You may have to spray the pan again to keep the mushrooms from sticking.
  4. Sprinkle the chicken with Mrs. Dash and the pepper and add to pan.
  5. Cook chicken, mushrooms, and garlic over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until chicken is almost done.
  6. Stir often. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, 2-4 minutes.
  7. Stir in the jar of Sun Dried Tomato Pesto sauce and the pasta and cook until heated through and chicken is no longer pink, about 5-8 minutes.
  8. Pour into serving dish and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
