What can you Pair With Your Spinach Feta Chicken?
Spinach and feta chicken pasta is a wholesome meal and very fulfilling that usually requires no side dishes. However, it never hurts to go a little fancy with your meals; good food is a good mood!
Garlic bread, Brown Rice Crackers, or Brown Rice Krispies make a great combination with the Fettuccine, plus it does not require you to go an extra mile to prepare it.
How to Store??
I would love to have a bowl of ready-to-eat pasta sitting in my fridge every time, so instead of cooking from scratch, all I have to do is warm it up. However, the stale spinach can make me question it.
Pasta can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 4-5 days and in the freezer for a month; even the chicken sausage in it will survive, but the spinach might not. Hence, storing spinach feta chicken sausage fettuccine pasta may not be a good choice; eat it fresh to enjoy every bite.
Time to Dig In!
With pasta, the only thing going wrong is not cooking a bigger serving!
There are a gazillion recipes sprinkled over the internet. Still, when it comes to putting health above taste and taste above health, nothing beats our spinach feta chicken sausage fettuccine recipe!
