DIRECTIONS

  • Place the flour in a large saucepan over medium heat, and gradually whisk in the milk.
  • Bring to a boil and whisk in the chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture slightly thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking over medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for about 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken and cook until slightly browned, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the spinach, stirring to coat.
  • Stir in the milk mixture, cheddar, and parmesan and cook until the cheddar has melted and the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes longer.
  • Meanwhile, cook the rigatoni in boiling water until just tender.
  • Drain well.
  • Transfer chicken mixture to a large bowl, add the rigatoni, and toss to combine.
  • Spoon the pasta mixture onto plates and serve.
