Preparation

Step 1

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Add the mushrooms, onion and garlic; cook, stirring as needed, until softened, 5 to 6 minutes.

Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the flour is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually stir in the milk and broth; cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chicken, spinach and pepper; return to a boil, stirring as needed. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring as needed, until the chicken is cooked, 6 to 8 minutes.

Place the pasta in a serving bowl; add the chicken mixture and toss to combine. Serve, sprinkled with the cheese.
