A delicious Chicken pasta with white beans and spinach that is perfect for a quick dinner. One of my favorite leftover grilled chicken recipes. (Also a great way to use chopped Thanksgiving turkey!)
This Chicken, Spinach and Cannellini Bean Pasta Recipe is not only easy to make but hearty and nutrient rich... real good for you food. It is also an excellent budget stretcher since beans make up a portion of the protein in this dish, which of course is also a fiber boost.
