Oh my – people!! We made the most amazing dish the other night. I had been craving some chicken with a creamy, spinachy- tomato type sauce. After mulling it over on how I would accomplish this & still fill the family I came up with this Chipotle Spinach Fettuccini. Looking for Easy Family Dinner Ideas? I added some chipotles in there too for a little heat to appease those that like it spicy. But it wasn’t too much for those of us that prefer the milder side of life. Definitely a dish I can’t wait to make for company once we get moved.
It was light – which was great because I usually dread the heaviness of pasta.
We used the Italian Garlic Butter to make the bread. Just melted a little in the microwave & then brushed it on these french loaf slices. Then broiled for about 3 minutes. Perfection.
