Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts boneless, skinless, cooked and cubed
  • 14 oz. Alfredo sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. pesto
  • 2 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 4 cups penne pasta uncooked
  • 1 large (gallon) freezer bag or reusable silicone bag

Instructions

Assembly Instructions:

  • Cook and cube the chicken.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook for 1-2 minutes less than the box directions call for. This is because you want the pasta slightly undercooked so that it doesn't become mushy after freezing and reheating. Drain.
  • In a skillet on the stovetop, heat the olive oil. Add the spinach and saute until wilted. Mix the Alfredo sauce, pesto, and garlic into the drained pasta.
  • Add the cubed chicken, pasta mixture and spinach to a large resealable freezer bag. Remove the extra air and seal before freezing.

Cooking Instructions:

  • On the day of cooking, thaw the bag before placing its contents into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake, covered in a preheated 350° oven for 45 minutes.
