Noodles & Co Penne Rosa

Thanks to Lisa Bongean for this recipe for Penne Rosa - just like Noodles and Company.....yum

I am so excited to make it tonight, and I thought I would pass the recipe on to you - enjoy!

Penne Rosa
1 box Penne pasta
1lb of boneless chicken breasts, cut up in small chunks
1 box of frozen chopped spinach-unthawed and drained of all excess water-i lay it between paper towels and press all the water out.
1 can diced Italian style tomatoes
1 14oz jar of Alfredo sauce-can use light-the recipe called for 2 I only used 1
1 8oz can of tomato sauce
8oz of sliced mushrooms
red pepper flakes
parmesan cheese

Boil noodles with a nice dash of pepper flakes
Cook chicken with a little oil browning it a little.  Set aside.
Sautee mushrooms with a little butter.
In a large sauce pan combine, alfredo sauce, tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, spinach and more red pepper flakes.  Simmer on low until everything is heated through…do not scorch, watch carefully.
In a large serving bowl, mix noodles, chicken and sauce, stirring well.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with garlic bread…
makes about 6 servings.
