Farfalle with spinach and chicken is a new recipe that was passed onto me from a friend. I had my doubts as to whether or not this recipe would deliver enough taste; however, after making it for dinner we were quickly won over. Farfalle with spinach and chicken is absolutely delicious and definitely a new favorite.

A lot of recipes that I make typically do not have spinach so this was something new for us. I wasn't quite sure whether my husband would like farfalle with spinach and chicken, especially since when we were shopping for the ingredients, I told him about this recipe and he did not seem too excited. But after just one bite he was hooked.

In addition to the garlic and garlic powder, the chicken broth provides a lot of flavor. The garlic isn't overpowering and the chicken broth is light, unlike some other pasta dishes that consist of olive oil. If you are looking for a new recipe that is filling but not heavy, try farfalle with spinach and chicken. You will keep going back for more...it is that good!
