  1. Prepare the pasta according to the package directions in a 6-quart saucepot. Add the spinach during the last minute of the cooking time. Drain the pasta mixture well in a colander, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid.
  2. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes, soup, 1/2 cup cooking liquid and red pepper and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Stir in the pasta mixture and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir in the remaining cooking liquid as needed until desired consistency. Sprinkle with the cheese.

After reading other reviews saying it was bland, I marinated my cubed chicken in olive oil, garlic and cayanne pepper spice for a few hours before cooking. I also omitted the 1/2 cup of water t...

This was just okay. I made it as directed, but it seemed to be missing something; the flavor was not very strong. If I were to make this again, I would try adding some additional herbs and/or ...

This was very easy to make. I will try it again with fewer tomatoes only because I am not a tomato fan.

I thought that this was great, but I did adjust a few things from other reviewers. I sauteed my chicken in Flavor Boost from Swanson (I also use Knorr brand). When chicken is almost finished I...
