I found this recipe online and then doctored it up with lots of garlic, basil and seasonings. That's the way I like it! It is so yummy and a very easy recipe!


  • 12 oz angel hair pasta
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts fillets
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4-6 fresh basil leaves, trimmed, rolled and sliced thin
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 pt heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp chopped basil for garnish
  • shredded Parmesan cheese for topping each serving


  1. In a large pot of salted water, cook pasta al dente. Drain and reserve 1 cup pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook fillets thoroughly, 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into thin slices.
  3. In a second skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain; then chop.

  5. Pour off half the bacon fat from the skillet and add chopped fresh garlic, basil, tomatoes, 1/2 cup of pasta water, and the seasonings to taste.* Add chicken and bacon.
  6. The heat should be on medium-high, until bubbling then lower. Now add heavy cream and grated cheese. Stir in well. Let this simmer only a few minutes. Add baby spinach, then add pasta. Stir together.

  8. Garnish with chopped basil and shredded fresh Parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy.

* I like to add a tablespoon of sugar, a tsp. of Italian seasoning, and a sprinkle more of garlic powder.
