Chicken And Spinach Pasta

Chicken and spinach pasta is one of my go-to dinners because of its simplicity and doesn’t take time to put together also delicious! I used a pack of frozen spinach but you can use fresh spinach or any vegetable of your choice. If you’re using fresh spinach make sure you blanch it to remove excess water from it before adding it to the dish.
