Ingredients

    Jumbo Pasta Shells (uncooked)
    2 teaspoons butter
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    5 garlic cloves, minced
    1/4 cup flour
    2 1/2 cups 1% milk
    6 ounce packaqge fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
    1 1/4 cups grated parmesan cheese, divided
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
    1/2 cup marinara sauce (I used Buitoni)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt. Drain.
3. While pasta cooks, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; saute 5 minutes or until tender. Add flour to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add milk, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook 10 minutes or until thick. Add spinach, stirring until spinach wilts. Remove from heat; add 1/4 cup cheese, salt, and pepper.
4. Stir in chicken, sauce, and 3/4 cup cheese. Evenly fill pasta shells - you may have leftover shells, depending on how full you fill them.
Place shells in lightly greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until bubbly.

Yield 8 servings.
