Welcome to another simple gluten-free pasta meal. This pasta dish is made with chicken, fresh spinach plenty of fresh basil, hint of garlic and lots of Parmesan cheese. Nothing fancy but the flavour is outstanding. The entire meal is made with less than 10 ingredients and in less than 30 minutes. Can you believe it? Pretty simple right? Most of my pasta recipes are made with olive oil, but in this case, the butter is a must. It adds so much flavour and ties everything together beautifully. I love it, perfect for a mid-week dinner. I would also like to add that this is one of those gluten-free pasta dishes you can serve to your guests, it is that good!!

Ingredients

  • 10 oz. gluten-free linguini pasta or any long cut gluten-free pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into strips
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tsp. GF dried basil
  • 5 oz. fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese (if you like it cheesy use 1 1/2 cups)
  • Pure sea salt and GF ground black pepper to taste
  • Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Boil the pasta until al dente. Just before draining, remove 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water. Drain the pasta.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter, the chicken, garlic and season with salt, pepper and dried basil. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 8 - 10 minutes. It is important not to burn the butter
  • Stir in spinach and basil and cook for about a minute, just long enough for the spinach to get wilted
  • Add hot pasta, pasta water and parmesan cheese and gently toss to combine
  • Serve immediately with freshly grated parmesan cheese
