I love putting together pasta dishes for a quick weeknight meal, and this chicken with spinach and pasta hits the spot.

This great pasta dish features chunks of seasoned chicken breast, shreds of sauteed baby spinach leaves, and al dente rotini pasta in a creamy light sauce.  And of course, you know minced garlic with mixed pasta means it will be bursting with flavor.
