I give my own version 5 stars, but my changes were enough for me to have to give it 4 stars as is. Here's what I did... Chopped then fried 5-6 pieces of bacon, set aside Sautéed the spinach and mushrooms with garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and a little white wine (from my glass) in the bacon grease Removed the spinach and mushrooms, placed in the bottom of the baking dish and sprinkled half of the bacon on top, then sautéed 3 chicken breasts (cut in chunks) with more garlic, some more white wine, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper While the chicken was sautéing, I melted ½ a stick of butter in a sauce pan, then added ½ and ½ (probably about a cup), squeezed in the juice of half a lemon, some Italian seasoning (about a tablespoon), more red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, garlic and whisked until it boiled. Once the chicken was just done, I added it to the top of the spinach/mushroom mix, topped it with the rest of the bacon and deglazed the pan with more white wine before adding my butter/cream mixture. Then about ¾ cup of parmesan cheese to thicken the sauce… Once the parmesan had melted enough and the sauce was thick enough I poured it over the top of the chicken. Baked for 20 minutes at 400, then added 1 cup or more of mozzarella cheese to the top and baked for about 10 minutes longer. Served over farfalle. RAVE reviews from my date – we both felt like we were in heaven eating this. So, so good.
