Spinach~Chicken Macaroni Bake

Angie Robinson


I got this recipe years ago from a friend of the family and replaced ground beef with ground chicken. It's a good way to get kids to eat spinach. It is very comforting. Tastes great with some garlic bread and salad :)

The photo shows it with beef..which is delicious.
