How to make a spinach chicken pasta to die for

For the spinach Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 3 minutes For the chicken Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes For the sauce Prep time: none Cook time: 11-15 minutes

I like to start with the spinach Clean the fresh spinach with plenty of water to remove any dirt it may have

Add to boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.

This is how it should look lime after the 3 min. it should still look nice and bright. Don't overcook!!!!

Drain and shock with iced water and let cool for a few minutes.

Drain

Squeeze all the remaining water by making into small balls

Chop as coarse or finely as you prefer

Start with 2 good size chicken breast

Chop them. You can also slice them if that's your preference

Mix some Olive Oil with the juice of 1 lemon. Add some Italian Seasoning and dried mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

Marinade the chicken in the mixture and set aside.

After letting it rest and marinate for a while, cook in a pan over medium heat.

Cook the pasta

Melt the butter in a sauce pan

Once melted and hot. Add the flour.

Combine and let cook for 1 minute

Add half the milk and stir to prevent clumps from forming cook for about 3 minutes

Add the nutmeg, salt and pepper and stir.

After a few minutes, add the remaining milk. Stir and let cook for a few more minutes.

Once it thickens and looks silky, it's done.

Drain the pasta

Serve the pasta first (I used 2 kinds)

Then the spinach

Add the chicken and a few dabs of butter

Top with the sauce, and you are done!
