Chicken & Spinach Pasta
This is a favorite anytime of year, we use it as a simple side during grilling season and have added to our holiday menu.
This is great on top of shredded lettuce with cheese and sour cream as a taco salad, or filling for tacos, burritos, or on top of nachos for an after school...
