This is my new favorite!!! I will definitely be making this on a regular basis.
There’s pasta, chicken and cheese. Need I say more? It’s quick and easy to make, plus it is filling.
I used a rotisserie chicken (just the breasts) because I was lazy. It would also be great with some seasoned and baked chicken breasts.
I have become a huge fan of meal prep. This includes baking some boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I do it on Sunday, then I have chicken ready for a few days.
I do a lot of cooking with chicken, so it never goes to waste. I also love making a quick and easy chicken salad for lunch.
I love that there is spinach in this dish. I didn’t used to like it as a child, but that has changed. For one thing, I don’t think there’s much flavor to spinach. It’s a great way to sneak in a serving of vegetables.
This dish makes 6 servings and it’s only 6 Freestyle points per serving.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Put tomato sauce in a small saucepan and add the dried minced onion, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
Cook and drain cavatappi according to the directions but subtract 1 minute from the cook time.
Poor noodles back into the pan they were cooked in. Add the chicken, spinach and spaghetti sauce, then stir it all up.
Pour into a casserole dish and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and it’s heated through.
