Yum! Yum! Your taste buds won't believe this is a light recipe!

serves 12 ( about 1 c. = 8 points +)

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Spray with nonstick spray and grill  or pan fry until juices run clear. Let chicken stand for 5 minutes before cutting into cubes.

In a large saucepot, combine cream cheese, milk, garlic, chicken broth, Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, whisking until smooth. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes.

 Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions, omitting fat. Just before draining, add spinach so that it wilts. Drain pasta and spinach.
