  • 3/4 pound(s) gemelli, penne or other short pasta
  • 1 cup(s) frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
  • 2 clove(s) garlic chopped
  • 1 cup(s) heavy cream

2. Melt the butter in the pasta pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

3. Add the cream, chicken, spinach and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper to the pot and cook until the chicken is warmed through and the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the pasta and peas and toss to combine. (add 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking water if the pasta seems dry.) Serve with grated parmesan.
