Recipe of the Week: 'Super Pasta'

A pasta dish with so many delicious ingredients!

Recipe of the Week: 'Super Pasta'

I like to eat.

So, one night, when my wife cooked up some whole wheat pasta with chicken, spinach and feta, I thought, "What else could we put in this?!"

A quick raid of the pantry and freezer that night turned a good meal into a great one, and ever since, the Mrs. and I have added things to what is now known as, simply, "super pasta."

OK, so I'm the only one who calls it that.



  • Whole wheat pasta (any kind that you'd like)
  • Chicken breast
  • Spinach leaves
  • Feta
  • Mushroom pieces
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Frozen peas
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Pine nuts


  • Cut the chicken breast into strips and cook in a pan with canola oil until they're no longer pink.
  • At the same time, boil water in a pot. Then, cook the pasta in that pot with a bit of canola oil.
  • In the same pan that the chicken is in, add the mushroom pieces, artichoke hearts, frozen (but thawed) peas and sun-dried tomatoes, and when they're all warm/hot enough to eat, add the spinach leaves and cover with a glass lid. (Keep the oil from the artichokes and tomatoes containers in the mix order to create a "sauce" for your pasta.)
  • Once the spinach shrivels down, take as much pasta as you'd like from the pot and cover it with as many toppings from the pan as you want.
  • Sprinkle feta and pine nuts on top of your pasta.
  • Add hot sauce if you wish.
  • Invite me to dinner.

What else could I add to this thing? (Serious) ideas in the comments section please!
