chicken coverPasta dinners are one of our favorites for weeknights. They are so versatile and so easy to make. Now, this one combines two of my favorite things–well, actually three: spinach dip, pasta and chicken.  How can you go wrong with all three?! Without further ado, here’s the recipe. Thank me later 😉
