Chicken Spinach & Bacon Spaghetti

Great Way To Get Your Chicken, Pasta, Vegetable & Bacon Fix All In One Easy To Make Meal!

We liked this great tasting dish so well we have made 3 times over the past 10 days and yes the leftovers were just as tasty as the fresh made.  Tried it doing using both olive oil and bacon fat and while maybe it’s not so good for you the bacon flavoring was tastier!  The other preference was using the fetticini noodles.  Seemed to be heartier.

Anyway if you enjoy all these flavors give it a try, we sure did like this and have added it to our meal routine.
