Pasta with Chicken, Spinach and Blue Cheese

This is a variation on this Spaghetti with Chicken, Spinach, Blue Cheese and Beans and actually the basic recipe that that comes out of. One of my ex's was a pretty good cook when it came to all things pasta and Italian and there are a few recipes of his that I still make on and off today, including the Basic Tomato Sauce that I make all the time. This was a staple in his house and is very simple to make and absolutely delicious.

There are so many variations that you could make; using any pasta shape you like, and swapping the dolcelatte in the recipe below for Stilton or Gorgonzola, or what ever you have. You could also add a little cream as I did in the bean recipe if you have some that needs using. This recipe is simple but effective, with the blue cheese packing a punch.

Pasta with Chicken, Spinach and Blue Cheese
(Serves 1)
(12 WW ProPoints per serving)

60g dried pasta shapes
1/2 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
30g dolcelatte
handful fresh baby spinach leaves
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
10g low fat spread

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and then cook the pasta according to packet instructions.

When the pasta is almost cooked, heat the low fat spread in a saucepan and add the garlic and chicken, cook until the chicken is warmed through and the garlic is cooked.

Add the pasta, spinach and blue cheese and cook, stirring, until the spinach wilts and the blue cheese has melted. Serve.
