– 8 ounces of pasta (such as fettuccine or penne)
– 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 4 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 cup heavy cream
– 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
– 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
– 2 cups baby spinach leaves
– Cherry tomatoes, halved, for garnish (optional)
– Fresh basil leaves, chopped, for garnish (optional)


1. **Cook the Pasta:**
– Begin by cooking the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside, reserving about 1/2 cup of pasta water.

2. **Prepare the Chicken:**
– Season the chicken strips with salt and pepper to taste.
– Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
– Add the chicken strips to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until they are cooked through and golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

3. **Make the Sauce:**
– In the same skillet, add minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
– Pour in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer.
– Stir in the grated parmesan cheese and dried Italian seasoning, stirring constantly until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
– If the sauce is too thick, gradually add some of the reserved pasta water until it reaches your desired consistency.

4. **Combine Pasta and Sauce:**
– Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the sauce, tossing to coat evenly.
– Stir in the baby spinach leaves and cooked chicken strips, allowing the spinach to wilt slightly.

5. **Serve and Garnish:**
– Once everything is heated through and well combined, remove the skillet from the heat.
– Garnish the creamy garlic parmesan chicken pasta with halved cherry tomatoes and chopped fresh basil leaves for an extra burst of flavor and color.
