Chicken Spinach Pasta with Bacon

I love pasta and could eat it almost every day but unfortunately, pasta is not the healthiest meal to serve your family. Since my family and I love all things pasta I try and put a healthier spin on it by adding vegetables to it. Instead of regular chicken pasta, I like to prepare Chicken Spinach Pasta with Bacon. In my opinion, since spinach is a superfood it is perfect for that healthier spin. 

One of my families favorite pasta dishes. The blend of spinach, chicken and bacon mixed with creamy sauce is amazing.

Chicken Spinach Pasta with Bacon does not use many ingredients and the ingredients that it does require are simple. 

  • 1 pound of cooked chicken, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz fettuccine pasta
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach
  • 5-6 strips of crispy bacon, crumbled
  • Salt/ pepper to taste

This is a relatively easy meal to make. My biggest advice is to not cook the noodles too early because they may dry out. It’s important that you plan everything perfectly. 

  • Prepare chicken with diced garlic (baked, grilled or stove top, however, you prefer- season to taste)
  • Prepare bacon, drain grease, and crumble
  • Add cream and milk to a skillet and heat to a boil. Stir periodically so it does not burn
  • Once the cream and milk begin to boil, lower to a simmer and stir in the grated cheese and bacon. 
  • The sauce should begin to thicken a bit
  • Cook pasta according to package directions and drain
  • Add the spinach to the pasta and then immediately add the cream and milk mixture
  • Stir everything together
  • Serve

This Chicken Spinach Pasta with Bacon is a huge hit in my house. My youngest child frowns on vegetables but since spinach does not have a taste she did not even know she was eating it when I snuck her a bite with the spinach.
