hearty, yet light chicken casserole made with mostly fresh ingredients. I used fresh spinach and added artichoke hearts.

Recipe Ingredients for chicken spinach casserole

10 oz. uncooked mostaccioli (tubular pasta)
10 oz spinach, thawed
2 tsp. olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb chicken breast, cut in 1 inch pieces
28 oz whole tomatoes, undrained, coarsely chopped
3 tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 tsp. dried basil
3/4 tsp. oregano

Recipe Directions for chicken spinach casserole

Cook mostaccioli according to package directions; drain. Place spinach on paper towels; squeeze until barely moist. In large skillet, place oil and saute onion and garlic until tender. Add chicken; cook just until chicken loses its pink color, stirring constantly. Stir in tomatoes and spices; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine pasta, spinach, chicken mixture, and 1/4 cup cheese in a bowl; stir well. Spoon into lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
