Chicken & Spinach Mostaccioli Recipe

Publisher Photo
So simple but so good, this saucy pasta dish is always well received. I love that I can prepare in no time on weeknight, but it tastes like I slaved all day. A sprinkle of fresh basil on top adds just the right sweetness. —Susan Hein, Burlington, WI

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2014

"Yum! Cooked the chicken along with the garlic and onion, then added fresh mushroom and Italian seasoning blend. I misread the recipe (oops) and put in a can of drained diced tomatoes. Turned out great and my husband liked it. Think it would also be very good as a meatless sauce."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 24, 2013

"For those who don't know where to find sun-dried tomatoes NOT in oil, look in the produce section. I used all of the ingredients and loved the taste of fresh basil sprinkled on top. I did change the amounts of some of the ingredients by cutting the chicken in half and adding extra spinach. Still great tasting . . . . I licked the bowl."
