Come’ on now. Does this dish looks inviting and delicious or what? I am so in love with this baked chicken, spinach, and cheese pasta. Super mouthwatering, it looks pretty with a pop of colors, and it is oozing with cheese. A no-fuss savory dish that you can make any time, any day. The flavors from the melted, thick cheese, savory noodles, and spinach blends perfectly together. This is my personal favorite. My go-to during date night with my husband paired with a bottle of wine. They said enjoy the little things and eat whatever makes you happy. And this unquestionably makes me happy every time.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN, SPINACH, AND CHEESE PASTA BAKE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.
Step 2: Bring to a boil a large pot with lightly salted water. When boiling, add the penne and cook for about 11 minutes until tender while stirring occasionally. Drain and set aside.
Step 3: In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sautee the onion for 5 to 7 minutes until tender.
Step 4: In a baking dish, combine the penne pasta, onion, chicken, diced tomatoes, spinach, and cream cheese. Mix until the cheese melts and everything is coated. Then, sprinkle over the mozzarella cheese.
Step 5: Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for another 15 minutes until heated through and the edges begin to brown.
