Tips for this recipe
Remember to save at least a cup of the cooking water - because the water is so full of starch from cooking the pasta, it will help keep the ingredients together and create a thicker sauce with the juices from the leeks and spinach and the melted cheese.
If your spinach isn’t washed, make sure to really rinse it well. Nothing is worse in pasta than gritty spinach!
Don’t skip the step of pounding out the chicken breasts - it helps them cook quicker and more evenly.
I hope you enjoy this healthy lemon chicken pasta with spinach recipe!
