Chicken Parmesan with Penne & Spinach

I got home later than expected tonight, which changed my dinner plans. I needed something that wouldn't take too long, so I decided to try a new idea for chicken parmesan. This recipe is so quick & easy & the Italian seasoning really kicks up the flavor. Mike didn't even mind the spinach I snuck in. The secret to having this on the table quickly - Tyson frozen breaded chicken breast fillets.

Chicken Parmesan with Penne & Spinach
4 breaded chicken breast fillets, frozen
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
2-3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
8 ounces penne pasta, cooked & drained
1 jar marinara sauce
1 can spinach, well-drained

Preheat oven to 425. Place frozen chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet lightly coated with non-stick spray. Sprinkle each with 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning. Bake 15 minutes. Remove chicken from oven & sprinkle with parmesan cheese, return to oven 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted. Combine penne & marinara sauce, stir in spinach. Place pasta mixture on plate & top with chicken breast fillet.
