EASY! Penne with chicken, spinach and tomato Alfredo (soooo good!)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is my family's favorite dish that I make. And it is sooo easy! It is enough for 6 adults. Or 2 adults and 2 kids, with more than enough to have for dinner the next night, and then lunch for 2 kids the next day. It's also good if you leave out the chicken.

Wow! This was GOOD! It's amazing what can become of sauce in a jar! It had a 100% homemade taste too! I will never tell anyone that it came from jars and cans! Spectacular!

This was very good (a little sweet, but not too much). I had it for dinner last night and had leftovers for lunch today. Yum.
