Cheesy chicken spinach pasta onion and chive sauce.  If you like a lot of sauce you can double the recipe because it kind of dries up for leftovers.

Ingredients:

  • 280 g pasta
  • 2 cups cooked chicken (cubed)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh cherry tomatoes (halved or quartered)
  • 1/2 onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 28 g chive and onion cream cheese (half of the small Philadelphia container)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup whole milk or heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt / 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh spinach

Directions:

  1. Cook your pasta, drain, and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter on medium heat then add in the chopped onions and garlic. Cook for a few minutes to soften them.
  3. Throw in your pre-cooked chicken breast cubes.
  4. Add in the onion and chive cream cheese and stir to melt it. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the milk, parmesan cheese, sour cream, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir.
