This recipe utilizes Secret Speedy Technique #3: The One Pot Pasta. A "one pot pasta," as you might expect, delivers a delicious pasta dinner with only using one pot --smart! This recipe boils the pasta in chicken, giving the whole dish an extra depth of savoriness. The bright pops of spinach and pepper nicely complement the earthy mushrooms and hearty chicken.
