  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion in hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Mix penne pasta, onion, chicken, diced tomatoes, spinach, and cream cheese together in a baking dish until the cream cheese melts and coats everything. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the pasta mixture. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until heated through and beginning to brown along the edges, about 15 minutes more.

Absolutely delicious. The creamy texture and the flavor of the tomatoes makes it a thumbs up for our family.

This was tasty. I used leftover chicken I had grilled the night before. I did add garlic that I sautéed in zesty Italian dressing. I added the tomatoes, sliced up cream cheese and spinach to th...

I don't care for spinach, so I used zucchini as a substitute. Tasted pretty bland, so out came the spices. Played around until I felt it was tasty. Good recipe for last minute, hurry up meal,...

sounds delish, but I'll be cooking my chicken first then blending it with the pasta and other ingredients.

Perfect as it is!
