Pasta in creamy, garlicky sauce
Cream and parmesan make this pasta the dreamboat that it is. I added in wilted spinach, roasted cherry tomatoes and chicken for good measure. Oh my! Absolute beauty.

Pasta in creamy garlicky sauce
Instructions
  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Place spaghetti pasta into the pot and cook until the pasta is al-dente. Drain the liquid, rinse pasta under running water and set aside.
  2. To a large pan, add 2 tbsp olive oil. Add the diced chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and slightly browned. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate. To the same pan, add the remaining olive oil. Add minced garlic and fry for a minute. Add cherry tomatoes to the pan and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly softened. Do not crush the tomatoes. Remove the softened tomatoes on to a plate.
  3. Add the spinach to the pan and allow to wilt. Pour milk and cream into the pan and mix. Add salt, oregano, chilli flakes and black pepper powder and mix well. Turn heat down to low. Wait until the sauce thickens slightly – 1-2 minutes. Add three-fourth of the parmesan cheese to the pan. Mix and switch off. Add back chicken, tomato to the pan. Add pasta also and gently fold in. Transfer to plates and top with remaining parmesan cheese. Serve warm. Enjoy!
