Number of Servings: 7


    1 box pasta, cooked and drained
    ~1 lb chicken, cubed
    6 TB olive oil
    5 oz spinach or kale, steamed, squeezed dry, and chopped
    1 cup finely shredded parmesan
    6 cloves garlic, crushed or 3 T garlic powder
    dash red pepper flakes


Heat olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a small glass bowl in the microwave for about 1 minute to blend flavors. Pour about 1 tablespoon of the flavored oil in a skillet. Salt and pepper chicken and cook in the oil over medium high heat until chicken is browned and juices run clear. Add the chopped and kale/spinach and saute with the cooked chicken for 1 minute (or until just barely wilted) and remove from heat. Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package; drain well. Add cooked chicken/spinach to pasta, along with lemon juice and Parmesan cheese. Then stir in the remainder of the flavored olive oil. Toss lightly until all ingredients are well-combined. Serve immediately. Makes about 7 servings. Enjoy!
