    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, cubed
    • 2 cloves garlic, chopped or to taste
    • 125ml red wine
    • 2 (400g) tins Italian-style chopped tomatoes
    • 225g dried pasta
    • 150g fresh spinach, chopped
    • 125g Mozzarella cheese, grated

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan with a lid over medium heat and cook and stir the chicken and garlic until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre, 5 to 8 minutes. Pour the wine and chopped tomatoes with their juice into the frying pan and bring to the boil over high heat while scraping any browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
    2. Stir in the pasta and return to the boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta have cooked through, but are still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Spread the spinach over the top of the pasta, cover and simmer until the spinach leaves are cooked, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the Mozzarella cheese evenly over the frying pan and simmer until the cheese has melted and the pasta is bubbling, about 5 minutes.

    Easy to make and very tasty.  -  03 Sep 2016


    My husband made this last night and it was excellent! He doubled the garlic and added some chopped red and green peppers. The smell as it was cooking was mouth-watering and the taste was even better. We will definitely make this again, and best of all, it is a great "starter" recipe that can be used in so many different ways  -  29 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
