Mini Fusilli With Creamy Chicken and Spinach

Total Time

Cook 15 mins

From the back panel of Barilla Piccolini MINI Fusilli. Recipe calls for fresh chicken breast but I cut up leftover cooked chicken from last night's meal. Very creamy and so easy to prepare.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté the onion in olive oil for 3 minutes on medium heat then increase to medium-high and add the chicken pieces. Season.
  2. When chicken is cooked (or warmed through if using leftover) add spinach and cream. Simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and toss with sauce.
  4. Stir in cheese before serving.

I always like to buy a cooked chicken when they are on special and freeze the meat especially for this type of meal. I found this meal very simple to make but would like to add garlic.
