Creamy Tomato Spinach Pasta with Chicken

June 17, 2016


I was super excited to try this Creamy Tomato Spinach Pasta recipe that I found on Pinterest, but my outcome is more gross looking than the “super beautiful, omg” outcome that I was expecting. It was really tasty – and gluten free thanks to the GF pasta! I hope yours turns out better than mine. Thank you Budget Bytes for this recipe!

He’s always snacking on chips and asked me for something healthy as an alternative. This recipe was followed (and changed a little bit) from Two Healthy Kitchens’ recipe here. The swap out for gluten free soy sauce makes this dish gluten free too 🙂
