Ingredients

    8 oz Chicken Breast, no skin
    1/2 cup Spinach, frozen
    1 oz Parmesan Cheese, grated
    4 oz Ronzoni Heathy Harvest Wheat Rotini Pasta
    1 cup Del Monte Diced Tomatoes, No Salt
    1 tbls Progresso Bread Crumbs - Italian Style
    2 dashes Black Pepper
    2 dashes Salt

Directions

Serves: 2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

First, clean the chicken and pat dry. Slice chicken breast into two pieces through the middle so that you have two wide pieces of chicken that are about 1/4" to 1/2" thick. If you need to, you can pound the chicken to flattn it if it's too thick. Put 1/4 cup of spinach on the smaller side of each piece of chicken. Top with 1/4 oz of grated parmesan cheese. Lightly season with salt and pepper if wanted. Slowly roll up the chicken, starting with the small end, like you would roll up a rug. Use a toothpick to keep together. Coat chicken with italian bread crumbs and place in a greased (I use Pam) cooking dish. Repeat process with second chicken piece. Place in oven for 45 mintues.

While the chicken is cooking, cook pasta - follow directions on box.

Heat up the diced tomatoes in a small pot over a low heat. Add salt, pepper, and Italian Seasoning/ Basil/Oregano if desired.

Once the chicken is done, let sit for 2-5 minutes to let cool to edible temperature. Serve with a side of pasta and top everthing with the tomatoes and other 1/4 oz of grated parmesan cheese.
