Cream Cheese Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake



What do you do when you are home all day with a sick kiddo and have some extra time on your hands? Experiment with a new recipe of course! I haven't gotten to the store yet this week and I basically whipped up this recipe with some staples that I keep in the house. The end result was a hearty cheesy pasta packed with flavor. My husband says its a keeper for sure and I have to agree!


Cream Cheese Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake
Serves 6
WW PP=8
Cal 300, Carbs 41.5, Fat 9.1, Fiber 13.5, Protein 24

Ingredients
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
12 oz. penne pasta cooked to al dente (I used Creamette 150)
1 tsp. dry Italian seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1 pkg creamed spinach, thawed
1 can petitie diced tomatoes
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar (mozzarella would be my first choice but I had none in the house)

Pre-Heat Oven to 375 degrees

Season chicken with garlic powder and Italian Seasoning.

Transfer hot cooked pasta to a casserole dish. Immediately stir in cream cheese. Once melted add the parmesan cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and chicken. Top with shredded cheddar.

Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Enjoy!
