Spinach & Chicken Pasta
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- Rigatoni pasta, cooked
- 2 cups chicken, diced
- 10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed
- 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. pepper
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 8 oz. mozzarella cheese
First, pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a pan. Then, add in your chopped onion, spreading it around the pan so that it creates a single layer. Bake this at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.
While that bakes, you can work on the topping. Add rigatoni pasta to a bowl, and then pour the diced chicken over it. Next, add the thawed spinach and diced tomatoes, and stir everything together. Then, add in the salt and pepper, and stir again.
Add the cream cheese to the bowl, spreading it out over the other ingredients. Then, pour the mozzarella cheese on top of everything. Mix everything together, and you’re all done with that part! Take the baked onion out of the oven and pour the pasta topping over it. Add extra cheese on top if you’d like. Bake this at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
When you remove your pasta bake from the oven, the top should be nice and golden brown. After you’ve taken it out of the oven, it’s ready to serve. Dish it out, garnish with some cilantro, and enjoy!
