Creamy Tomato and Spinach Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken
2 Chicken breasts, diced into 1" pieces
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 tbsp sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
6 oz light cream cheese
1/2 bag of fresh spinach, chopped
12 oz box Farfalle, cooked
Fresh parm and basil to garnish (optional)
Boil water and cook the pasta Al dente, according to directions. Drain and set the pasta aside.
Marinate chicken in the Italian dressing for at least 30 minutes.
Pour the chicken into a large skillet on the stove top and cook on medium high until chicken is cooked through.
Remove the cooked chicken and set aside.
In that same skillet, lower heat to medium and add the onions. Cook until translucent, scraping up the chicken bits for extra flavor. Add more olive oil if needed.
Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add the cans of tomatoes, sugar, basil, oregano, salt and pepper and stir until combined. The sugar is optional but it does help to cut the acidity from the tomatoes.
Add the diced cream cheese and stir until it is melted and sauce is super creamy and smooth.
Add spinach and cook until it is just wilted.
Toss in the chicken and cooked pasta and stir until it is combined.
Plate the pasta and top with some fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
