WW pts/serving = 12


4 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1 inch strips [I used pre-cooked chicken strips]
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 (8 ounce) package cold cream cheese, cubed
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 (16 ounce) package dry penne pasta [I used spaghetti]

[NOTES: I sauteed some chopped onion, sliced fresh mushrooms, 4 garlic cloves, salt and pepper with the chicken and olive oil before adding chicken broth.]


> Bring large pot of water to a boil, and stir in penne pasta.
> Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, stir chicken cubes in broth; simmering until done, about 10 minutes. Stir in cubed cream cheese and spinach.
> Return to simmer, and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cherry tomatoes, and cook about 3 minutes more.
> In a large bowl, mix together cooked, drained pasta and sauce. Let stand a few minutes before serving.
