Description

A creamy and decadent pasta without all of the fat!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Divided
  • 4 whole Scallions, Chopped Finely
  • 1 cup Dry White Wine, Like Chardonnay
  • 5 ounces, weight Goat Cheese
  • 2 pounds Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 2 dashes Sea Salt And Pepper
  • 1 pound Whole Grain Or Whole Wheat Pasta
  • 1 can (14 Oz. Can) Spinach

Preparation

Put 1 tablespoon of the extra virgin olive oil into a skillet over medium heat. Cook chopped scallions until soft. Add wine and cook until sauce is reduced by half, or about 5 minutes. Add goat cheese and stir until soft. Take off heat and set aside.

While sauce is being prepared, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a pan and add chicken, cooking thoroughly until chicken is browned on both sides, about 10 minutes. Salt the chicken and add pepper.

Once chicken has cooled, slice into strips.

While chicken is cooking, heat a pot with boiling salt water. Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until soft.

Once pasta is drained, coat pasta, chicken and spinach in goat cheese sauce. Add pepper to taste and enjoy!

Very easy to prepare…and yummy! I didn’t have spinach on hand so I opted for frozen peas. Thanks!
