One-Pot Cheesy Italian Pasta and Chicken

One-Pot Cheesy Italian Pasta and Chicken

Ingredients

8 ounces baby spinach leaves, divided
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and Italian herbs, drained (about 7 ounces)
1 large yellow onion, sliced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1/2″ bite size pieces)
6 garlic cloves, sliced
1 pound dry linguine
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (This makes the meal very spicy!)
4 cups (32 ounces) reduced sodium chicken stock
1 cup (8 ounces) chardonnay wine
4 ounces fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded

Directions

Combine 1/2 of the spinach with the tomatoes, onion, chicken, garlic, linguine, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper in a 5-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Pour chicken stock and wine over top. Cover and bring to a boil.

Cook 7-9 minutes until pasta is al dente (with a bite to it). Toss pasta with tongs occasionally to keep the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pot. You will still have some liquid in the pan when the pasta is done cooking. This is going to make the base for our delicious cheese sauce.

Turn off the heat and add the cheese to the pasta. Toss pasta with tongs until the cheese melts into the pasta. Toss in remaining spinach. Serve and enjoy!

Tamale Pie

Tamale Pie

Ingredients
Cornbread
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • ⅔ cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons oil (I used olive oil)
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small can diced green chiles (4.5 ounce can)
  • 1 can of corn or creamed corn
Meat
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
Tamale Pie
  • 1 ¼ cup enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese (I used sharp white cheddar)
Optional Toppings
  • Salsa
  • Guacomole
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Lime wedges

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add oil until soft crumbles form. Whisk in milk and egg. Gently fold in chiles and corn. Pour into greased baking pan (9×9, 9×13, large cast iron skillet). Bake until set (a toothpick should come out clean), about 20-25 minutes.
  3. While cornbread is baking, combine beef with spices and sauté in a skillet over medium heat until fully cooked, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. Once cornbread is done baking, reduce oven to 350 degree F. Poke holes in cornbread with a fork and pour enchilada sauce over it. Top with ground beef and shredded cheese, and cover with aluminum foil. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and back until cheese begins to brown, about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving with desired toppings.
