1 jar (12 oz) roasted red bell peppers, thoroughly drained
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter
teaspoons finely chopped garlic
2 3/4 cups water
2 1/3 cups uncooked penne pasta (8 oz)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken
bag (5 oz) baby spinach


1. In blender, place roasted peppers, whipping cream and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth. Set aside.

2. In 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, heat butter over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until garlic is tender.

3. Add water, pasta, salt and pepper; heat to boiling. Simmer uncovered 11 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is al dente and most of liquid is absorbed.

4. Stir in chicken and roasted peppers mixture. Continue heating 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until heated through and sauce starts to thicken. Gradually add spinach, stirring constantly, until starting to wilt. Remove from heat; serve with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
