Ready in just 35 minutes, seafood lovers can substitute shrimp for chicken in this pasta-liscious dish.
Updated Mar 30, 2011

Ingredients

  • 8 oz spaghetti, cooked, reserving 1/3 cup pasta water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups loosely packed spinach
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3/4 cup cubed, cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works great)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/3 cup reserved pasta water

Steps

  • 1
    In large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Cook mushrooms, onions and spinach in butter until vegetables are softened and spinach is wilted, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Stir in garlic. Add the flour and stir for 1 minute until the pasty taste cooks off. Add the half-and-half and stir slowly as sauce thickens. Add the chicken to skillet; cook until hot, stirring occasionally. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3
    Add cooked spaghetti and reserved pasta water. Stir to combine.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Shrimp would be a great substitute for the chicken, and asparagus also works well in place of the spinach.
