This Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta is filled with creamed spinach, onions, chicken and cream cheese to make a quick and decadent dinner! A perfect dinner for a busy weeknight with only a few ingredients and almost no prep needed.
Nothing is better than sneaking spinach into a dish to get my kids (and husband) to eat this super veggie. Of course like it’s cousin, Spinach Artichoke Dip, this dish cannot be labeled healthy with its creamed spinach and cream cheese. But hey I’m still going to count it! The chicken is tender, juicy and filled with flavor thanks to cooking on a bed of onions and garlic parmesan sauce creamed spinach. Another easy dinner recipe that the can be pulled together quickly is this Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta.

I found this creamed spinach bake in the frozen aisle that had a parmesan cream sauce with garlic in it!
That sounded like the beginning of a delicious meal to me. I made it into a quick version of tuscan chicken pasta that I didn’t need to make from scratch. Sometimes I love to make Alfredo sauce from scratch but other days I need an easy dinner the whole family will gobble up that takes minutes to prep like this. This creamy, rich pasta is incredibly easy but feels fancy.

Let the chicken pasta cool all the way down. Place leftovers in refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days. I will say this pasta even tastes good cold!
FOOD ALLERGIES- GLUTEN FREE
Make sure to use gluten free pasta when making this dish to keep it gluten free. I make everything gluten free in our house because my husband has celiac disease, which is when you are allergic to gluten. Our favorite pasta is the Gluten Free Barillla Pasta line. I find that it is the best one at staying together while cooking and the taste is just like real pasta. I used the Barilla Gluten Free Penne for this recipe.
