The success of this super-simple dish depends on using good-quality feta cheese. With so few ingredients, each needs to pull its weight, and here it's the cheese in particular that will make this pasta shine.
6 ounces spaghetti
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
8 ounces baby spinach
1/2 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
1/2 teaspoon red chile flakes
1 cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
1 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
3 ounces good-quality feta cheese, crumbled
How to Make It
Cook spaghetti as package directs.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach, wine, chile flakes, olives, pine nuts, salt, and pepper.
Drain pasta, return to pot, and add onion mixture and chicken. Stir to coat and cook over medium heat until warmed, about 4 minutes. Transfer to plates and top with feta cheese.
Just tried this recipe last night, and my whole family loved it. Great combination of tastes and easy to prepare. It did take longer than 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish; however, once all ingredients were ready, it took about 15 minutes to cook.
