Creamy Chicken Corn Spinach Pasta

Creamy Chicken Corn Spinach Pasta

Vegetarians can omit chicken and proceed with the recipe

I had bought tri coloured pasta for making salad and each time I was opening my cup board these pastas were screaming at me that I need to make something different with them and when Haseeb told me that he has invited Anees Deedi to come for lunch , I decided to make new kababs using mince meat and chicken( got to make them soon ) thats when Haseeb told that Deedi will be getting cutlets so not to make kababs ….that’s when I remembered about these pasta and decided to make them and within minutes it was ready

When I made this pasta , I knew kids will love it but to my surprise my mom in law loved the pasta and said it tasted awesome…. It was nice to see elders enjoy new dishes as I always felt that it’s difficult to convince elders eat new kind of food, plus cool way to introduce spinach to kids
