Chicken Florentine Bow-tie Pasta

When I saw this recipe at the Picky Palate I knew it was perfect for our family. It was super easy, quick to make and I loved that I could put it together the night before and just pop it into the oven when I got home from work the next day. It was the first time I used Philadelphia Cooking Creme and it was a huge hit with the kids and the hubby.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup finely chopped white onion
1 clove minced garlic
4 cups baby spinach leaves
2 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups Philadelphia Cooking Creme
1 pound bowtie pasta or other small noodle
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place oil in Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Stir in spinach leaves, cook, stirring until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add chicken, salt and pepper and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add cooking cream, stirring to combine.
  3. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and run under cold water to stop cooking. Add pasta to chicken mixture stirring to combine. Transfer to prepared baking dish and top with cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until cheese is melted.
