I need to become better about planning my meals in advance and eating healthier. The two go hand in hand. Tonight I didn’t feel like leaving the house, so I searched online for recipes that included chicken and spinach….two items already in my fridge. I came across http://www.savingmoneylivinglife.com/2010/06/chicken-spinach-pasta-bake.html and the wheels started spinning. Since I’m TRYING to eat less gluten, I decided to modify this yummy recipe. I added a cup of a quinoa pasta, but i substituted roasted cauliflower for the bulk. When eating CLEAN I would use a cheese substitute or add pureed beans. Here’s how my version WITH cheese breaks down.
Ingredients 1 Cup Quinoa pasta 1T Red Pepper Olive Oil 1 9oz package FRESH spinach chopped 2 Cooked chicken breasts cubed 1 28oz can peeled plum tomatoes 8oz Cream cheese 1 Red Onion chopped 1 Head roasted cauliflower chopped 1 tsp Garlic powder 1 tsp Salt 8oz Shredded mozzarella cheese, (optional) 1tsp Wildtree Jalapeno Pepper Blend
