Quick Chicken and Pasta Cassarole with Tomato and Spinach

Submitted by: EXFULGERE

Introduction

This comes together pretty quickly and makes great take-along lunches for the work week. My son and I threw this together one evening when we were short on ingredients and it was too late to go to the store. The recipe is in its simplest form; however, seasonal vegetables can be added as desired. Great paired with a mixed greens and veggie salad.
