Spinach chicken pasta

It's been so long since I wrote my last post and I've been missing blogging so much since a few weeks..and then today I realized that if I wait for a perfectly planned cooking and photography session, it's never going to work.. So, why not use my phone to take a few decent pictures and use the app to blog..
Even though it was not as easy I thought it was, becasue I had to switch between my computer and my phone for editing :( , here I am writing my first post with help of my iphone! Not bad huh! 


Spinach chicken pasta is a simple and hearty dish that your entire family will like and will also make a good lunchbox meal for the kids! 

Olive oil - 2 Tbsp
Butter - 1/2 Tbsp (optional)
Garlic - 4 cloves, minced
Cheese, any kind - 1/4 cup, grated
Spinach - 1 bunch, chopped
Chicken - 1lb, cut into thin strips
Pasta, any kind - 1/2 lb
White wine - 1/4 cup
Lemon juice - 1 Tbsp
Tomatoes - 1 can
Dried basil - 1-2 tsp
All purpose seasoning 1-2 tsp

  1. Heat olive oil and butter (if using) in a slightly deeper pan
  2. Add the minced garlic and onions and saute until golden.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, basil, all purpose seasoning, salt and pepper.
  4. Add the chicken, lemon juice and saute until the chicken is all cooked.
  5. Now add the white wine and mix well and let it cook for a few minutes.
  6. Add pasta, spinach and let the spinach cook down.
  7. Now add the cheese and mix well and remove from heat.
I tried to take as many pictures to give you an idea of all the steps..I hope it helps!!

You can make the same pasta without chicken and add any other vegetable instead, For eg, Mushroom would be a good choice here..Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!!
