Chicken and Spinach Ziti


1 lb. box ziti pasta

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

1 red bell pepper, chopped

2 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 (12 oz.) jar S&F Marsala Cooking Sauce

1/3 cup heavy cream

1 (5 oz.) package baby spinach

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley


  1. Put a large pot of salted water onto the stove over high heat. Bring to a boil. Add the ziti and stir. Cook for about 10 minutes until al dente, drain the ziti and return it to the pot.
  2. While waiting on the ziti, add the oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken, red pepper, garlic, black pepper, and salt. Cook and stir until the chicken is just about cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the S&F Marsala Cooking Sauce and heavy cream. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Add the spinach a few handfuls at a time until all of the spinach is wilted into the sauce and turn off the heat.
  4. Add all but 2 Tbsp. of the Parmesan and stir well. Pour the chicken mixture over the ziti in the pot. Toss well to combine.
  5. Transfer the ziti to a serving bowl. Garnish with remaining Parmesan and parsley.
