The flavors of tender paprika-seasoned chicken strips simmered in broth, onion and a splash of lemon juice as well as sherry go wonderfully with wilted spinach and a mix of cheeses. Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella - Traditional Cut is among the tasty toppings on top of a bed of your favorite al dente pasta.

Ingredients
  • 8 oz. rotini or penne pasta
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) fresh spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
