The spinach sauce is what sets this recipe apart, so fresh and delicious. Omit the chicken and you have a perfect meatless meal and I promise you won’t miss it. …

After a Sunday dinner of deep dish pizza at Savastano’s we were left with a LOT of leftovers. So our dinners for Monday & Tuesday weren’t too exciting and didn’t involve cooking.
