I like to start with the spinach Clean the fresh spinach with plenty of water to remove any dirt it may have
Add to boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.
This is how it should look lime after the 3 min. it should still look nice and bright. Don't overcook!!!!
Drain and shock with iced water and let cool for a few minutes.
Squeeze all the remaining water by making into small balls
Chop as coarse or finely as you prefer
Start with 2 good size chicken breast
Chop them. You can also slice them if that's your preference
Mix some Olive Oil with the juice of 1 lemon. Add some Italian Seasoning and dried mustard. Season with salt and pepper.
Marinade the chicken in the mixture and set aside.
After letting it rest and marinate for a while, cook in a pan over medium heat.
Cook the pasta
Melt the butter in a sauce pan
Once melted and hot. Add the flour.
Combine and let cook for 1 minute
Add half the milk and stir to prevent clumps from forming cook for about 3 minutes
Add the nutmeg, salt and pepper and stir.
After a few minutes, add the remaining milk. Stir and let cook for a few more minutes.
Once it thickens and looks silky, it's done.
Drain the pasta
Serve the pasta first (I used 2 kinds)
Then the spinach
Add the chicken and a few dabs of butter
Top with the sauce, and you are done!
