My family loved this! We love all things pasta. Our weekly menu always includes at least one pasta dish.
So when Philadelphia Cooking Creme asked me to swap out one of our regular dinners with one of their recipes, I jumped at the chance. There are several recipes in their Fresh Family Favorite recipe collection. I chose this Creamy Chicken Florentine. Creamy pasta meals make my family happy. And you know how I love easy recipes. This one fits that category too.
I chose to use the Reduced Fat Savory Garlic flavor of Cooking Creme. I was afraid it might be too garlicky tasting, but it was perfect. The taste was subtle, with just the right amount of flavor.
I did make a few minor alterations to the recipe. First, I doubled it. The original recipe serves 4. Not enough for my family of 6. I also skipped the pine nuts. You can substitute slivered almonds, if you don’t want to spring for pine nuts. (I love pine nuts, but they are pricey.)
Serves: 6-8 servings
- 1½ - 2 lbs. boneless chicken, cut in pieces
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 2 tubs (10 oz each) PHILADELPHIA Savory Garlic Cooking Creme
- 10 oz baby spinach leaves
- 1 lb. cooked penne pasta
- 4 Tbs. pine nuts or slivered almonds, optional
- Cook the chicken and peppers in a skillet over medium heat till chicken is done.
- Stir in Cooking Creme and cook 3 minutes. Stir frequently.
- Stir in the spinach and cooked pasta.
- Top with nuts.
