pasta is probably one of the most loved foods

In this layered skillet meal, every bite is filled with creaminess, chicken, spinach and pasta. The saltiness of ham and creaminess of two kinds of cheese with spinach create unforgettable flavours.

This chicken cordon bleu pasta dinner is easy enough to enjoy any night of the week. And it is the perfect comfort food.

Sharing the easiest pasta dish and keeping the gluten-free dinner super tasty and satisfying is what the dish is all about! 

Add a rich, creamy sauce hinted with basil and garlic, chicken, cheese, ham, and creamy spinach, and you can easily serve this dish for a special occasion.

Today’s inspiration came from one of our favourite chicken recipes – the chicken cordon bleu dish. However, this gluten-free pasta dinner recipe is a step above the classic chicken cordon bleu recipe.

The difference is, the pasta and fresh spinach make this French-inspired recipe a hearty one-pot meal.

healthier chicken cordon bleu pasta recipe

As with most of my gluten-free recipes, I wanted to add extra healthiness. So I added healthy fresh baby spinach. To keep the spinach creamy, I mixed it with ricotta.

Compared to most cheeses, ricotta is a healthier choice because it contains less fat and salt. Ricotta adds creaminess without adding extra calories.

recipe details,

To start, I cooked the pasta in well salted water. It would be best if you cooked the pasta al dente, cooked but firm to the bite. I prefer to slightly undercook the pasta because it will continue cooking in the oven.

While the pasta is cooking using a large oven proof skillet, brown the chicken in olive oil or butter. The browning of the chicken is what will add flavour to the sauce.

Once the chicken is browned, add the cream or milk, chicken broth, tapioca starch garlic and basil. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook until the sauce starts to thicken.

Transfer half of the sauce with chicken to a bowl and then add the pasta to the same skillet. Mix the sauce, chicken and pasta until combined.

the layers,

The dish now has a layer of creamy pasta. Add a layer of ham, a mixture of spinach and ricotta, cheese slices, the remaining sauce with chicken, ham, and finish with cheese.

Pop the skillet in the oven for about thirty minutes. The cheese will become golden brown and the ham crispy.

This gluten-free chicken cordon bleu pasta is a simple and delicious pasta dinner made almost in only one skillet. I cooked the pasta separately as not to take away from the flavourful creamy sauce and to keep it saucy.

To serve this gluten-free meal, spoon the pasta into bowls, and if you wish, sprinkle with hot chilli pepper flakes. This pasta dinner is simple and delicious, but even more importantly, everyone loves pasta!
