    In small bowl, toss chicken, Italian seasoning and pepper flakes. In 4-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes without moving, until browned on first side. Stir; add mushrooms, and cook 4 to 6 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until mushrooms soften.

    Add spaghetti, broth, whipping cream and garlic. Heat just to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook 12 to 16 minutes, stirring frequently, until pasta is cooked. Stir in spinach and Parmesan cheese. Remove from heat; let stand 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice.

Expert Tips

  • Stir, stir, stir! One-pots cook quickly, so be sure to stir frequently to prevent the pasta from sticking to the pan.
  • Can’t take the heat? Leave out the red pepper flakes.
