If you’re looking for a delicious pasta dish you’re going to want to try this!

To make a dish “Florentine Style” basically means serving a protein over a bed of spinach.

It also has a delicious cream sauce that’s easy to make.

So I figured why not turn it into a pasta dish!?

Here’s what you need to make Chicken Florentine Pasta:

  • 1 lb. of chicken breast
  • Fresh garlic
  • Chicken broth
  • All purpose flour
  • Spinach
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Half and half
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper

Instead of using heavy cream for the sauce I used half and half.

For 1/2 cup of heavy cream it is 20 points but 1/2 cup of half and half is only 7 points. That’s 13 less points!

I also limited the amount of butter, using only 1 teaspoon.

To make sure the Chicken Florentine Pasta was filling I used plenty of chicken and spinach.

This recipe is great for using a store bought rotisserie chicken, if you’re looking to save time.

I chose to cook my own chicken for this. I seasoned it with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper then baked it in the oven.

Once it was done cooking I cut it into bite size pieces.

Overall it’s a very easy recipe and more importantly it’s delicious and low in points.
