Pasta and chicken make a nice pairing when combined with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes.
Penne with Chicken, Spinach and Tomatoes
2 to 3 boneless chicken breasts
½ bag fresh spinach
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
3 tablespoons cornstarch
4 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup white wine
1 teaspoon chopped fresh or jarred garlic
Penne pasta (enough for 2 to 3 servings)
Salt and pepper
Boil water in a large pan and add the pasta. Drain the pasta when done. Heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a saute pan. Cut the chicken into strips. Stir-fry in the oil until done. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with 1 cup of water and add to the chicken. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach to chicken. Add the wine, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer about 10 minutes or until spinach is cooked. Serve over pasta.
