How to Make Spinach Cream Pasta

Step-by-Step

  • 1Get all the chicken off the bones and shred to the desired size pieces. Set aside, and open the bottle of Tostitos Spinach Dip. Get a soft silicone spatula ready.
  • 2Put pasta in pot and cover with water so it is about 2 inches over the surface of the pasta.
    Add salt to taste, about 2 teaspoons or so. I use Celtic salt which is healthy for you.Do not cover the pot, you will not be draining the water out, it will absorb into the pasta as it cooks. If you need to add water if it becomes dry before it softens. Add boiling water, not cold if needed. Stir constantly.
  • 3When your pasta is about done, add the frozen vegetables, and let soften for a few minutes. Turn off the fire and add the chicken, and the Tostitos Spinach Dip! Enjoy hot or cold!
  • 4This makes a wonderful cold dish for the summer. I serve it with fresh greens salad, or cut fresh cucumbers, carrots and radishes. I LOVE THIS!
