Recipe: Chicken Veggie Pasta Alfredo

I had some ground chicken to cook up and here's how I used it!

1 lb thawed ground chicken
1 tbs olive oil
1 package of fresh spinach (frozen is okay too, but thaw it)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 package whole wheat pasta
1 jar of your favorite Alfredo style sauce
1 tsp Italian herb seasoning 

* Brown ground chicken at medium heat with some olive oil.  Start water for boiling pasta.
* Toss in your chopped veggies and let them cook up, then add the spinach towards the end.  Put a cover on and let simmer for 2-3 minutes until spinach is wilted.  Add herbs.  The whole package will cook down nicely.  Cook pasta to desired tenderness.
*  Once spinach is cooked down, drain excess fluids and then return to heat.  Add in jar of sauce or homemade sauce and let it warm up.
*  Mix together the veggie/meat mixture and pasta in a nice big bowl and enjoy!

Makes about six yummy servings.
