Ingredients

1 cup

3⁄4 cup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pour ½ cup of the pasta sauce in a large baking dish. Sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken and add to the dish. Top with the remaining ½ cup of pasta sauce, spinach and mozzarella.

This was super easy to make and a great way to get Spinach on the table!  It was super tasty with rice.

 

This is tasty and delicious.  It was very easy to put together and can be made with ground turkey or chicken, too.  Its flavors are mild, but you can bump it up with a ¼ cup of parmesan!
