Tasty Tuesday

One thing I love to do is try new recipes.  This one in particular is one of my favorites.  It’s great for when you’re having company over.  It’s wonderful  if you have to bring a dish to a dinner party and if you know someone who’s laid up and can’t cook, it’s a great dish to bring over. 

It’s one of those dishes where you can do a lot of the prep work ahead of time as well. And if not, that’s ok because it’s super easy to make! 


Chicken & Spinach Pasta Bake



    8 oz uncooked rigatoni

    1 T olive oil

    1 c chopped onion

    1 (10 oz) pack frozen spinach, thawed

    3 c cubed, cooked chicken breasts

    1 (14 oz) can Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained

    1 (8 oz) container Philadelphia chive & onion cream cheese

    ½ t salt, ½ t pepper

    1½ c shredded mozzarella cheese

 Prepare rigatoni according to pkg directions.  Spread oil on bottom of 11×7 in baking dish; add onion in a single layer.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or just until tender.  Transfer onion to large bowl, set aside.

 Drain chopped spinach well, pressing between paper towels.  Stir in rigatoni, spinach, chicken, & next 4 ingredients into onion in bowl.  Spoon mixture into dish & sprinkle evenly with shredded mozzarella cheese.  Bake covered at 375 for 30 minutes; uncover & bake 15 more minutes or until bubbly.
