Lemon Spinach Chicken Pasta

This original recipe had ricotta cheese, a different pasta, much more steps, and no protein. We have a protein at every meal philosophy so the chicken was an easy add-in. Shrimp could be added too.

Bonus - one-pot cooking is the best and my son really likes this one.


  • 1 package of Dreamfield Penna pasta (or any brand)

  • 4 cooked chicken breasts, cut into cubes

  • 1 cup Daisy cottage cheese

  • 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1 cup plain water

  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 5 oz spinach

  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (can add more if you like a hotter zing)


Cook the pasta by the package directions

Drain and return to pan

Add all remaining ingredients and stir until well blended and the spinach is wilted.

Serves 6 - 5 oz servings
