It's like one of the most talked about foods in this household, and honestly, if it were up to my kids we would be eating some sort of pasta dish every single day.
While grocery shopping last week, I came across the Philadelphia Savory Garlic cooking creme. I grabbed one, brought it home and then thought "well what do I do with this?" LOL
After a quick search online, I came across a recipe from Kraft Foods. It was really quick to throw together and I can tell you that there was nothing left of it once dinner was over.
The only thing I omitted were the nuts because we don't like nuts or fruit mixed in with food (we're weird like that) LOL
Anyway, here is the recipe, try it for yourself, whether you choose to add in the pine nuts or leave them out, this is still a delicious pasta dish.
Creamy Chicken Florentine
1lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2cup halved red pepper strips
1tub (10 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Savory Garlic Cooking Creme
1pkg. (6 oz.) baby spinach leaves
2cups hot cooked penne pasta
2Tbsp. toasted Italian pine nuts
COOK chicken and peppers in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 5 to 6 min. or until chicken is done.
ADD cooking creme; cook and stir 3 min.
STIR in spinach and pasta; top with nuts.
