Recipe: Chicken Spinach Pasta with Mozzarella

Once again, a recipe slapped together with whatever we had at home. I hope you enjoy it!

It’s a healthy choice for anyone wanting to get high amounts of vitamins and minerals into their meals. The spinach and garlic have many health benefits and all of these ingredients have a beautiful mix of flavours in the end.


1 bunch spinach

2 cups pasta (adjust according to servings)

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1-2 lean chicken breasts (cubed)

1 cup black olives

1 cup cubed mozzarella

Olive oil

1 tablespoon dried basil

Salt & Pepper to taste

Optional: pinch of paprika or small dried red pepper rings


In a large pot, bring water to boil and add a pinch of salt, followed by pasta.

Cook pasta to desired tenderness, remove from water and rinse under cool water to stop cooking process. *Make sure to keep pasta water in pot over heat*

Set pasta aside in a large bowl and proceed to thoroughly wash spinach.

Place in boiling water and cook until bright green, drain and place in bowl with pasta.

Drain the remaining water and add some olive oil (2-4 tablespoons) with the garlic over medium high heat.

Mix garlic for a few seconds and add chicken.

Sprinkle dried basil along with a little salt and pepper.

When the chicken is cooked through, pour over the pasta and spinach in the bowl, mix a few times and top with black olives and/or mozzarella.

Serve and enjoy!
