  • 1/4 tsp pepper, divided

  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 tbs olive oil

  • 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped

  • 1/2 lb fettuccini pasta

Once melted stir in garlic let it cook for a minute to become fragrant (don’t let garlic burn) Pour in 1/4 cup of the chicken broth scrape the bits off the bottom of the pan. Stir in tomato paste and let simmer until the mixture thickens and the tomato paste is incorporated.

  • Break fettuccini noodles in half add them into the mixture. Let simmer for 15-18 minutes stirring frequently until pasta is tender (If the liquid gets too low you can add in 1/4 cup more chicken broth OR milk in at a time until the pasta is cooked)
  • Add in parmesan cheese, cooked chicken, and spinach let spinach wilt down and cheese melt. Enjoy!

  1. Making this now but didn’t have the fettucine…so I’m improvising that part. Smells so good cooking on the stove!
