I had chicken and spinach that I was wondering what to do with, and I happened upon this recipe. I don't usually have whipping cream on hand but there was some that needed to be used in my fridge. I used regular Gemelli instead of whole wheat Penne but the rest of the recipe I followed pretty closely (I'm not very precise with measuring sometimes). This dish was really really delicious. My husband and all 3 of my preschool age and under kids loved it. The only thing we thought it needed was a touch of salt and pepper at the table to really bring out all of the flavors. It's a nice fresh tasting dish that we'll certainly be making again. Thanks!
