How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, cook the pasta 4 minutes. Drain, but do not rinse. Pasta should still be firm.
  • Heat water in a large non-stick pan. Saute the onion, pepper, and garlic until tender.
  • Add chicken, cooking until almost done.
  • Add in the peas, spinach, tomato paste, and water.
  • Continue to cook, stirring, until chicken is no longer pink. Season sparingly with salt and pepper and remove from heat while preparing bechamel.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Mix in the stock and milk, season with pepper.
  • Whisk the cornstarch and water until smooth, then stir into sauce.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup of the mozzarella, and cook until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.
  • In a large bowl, mix the cooked pasta with 1/2 the bechamel sauce.
  • Mix the chicken saute with the remaining bechamel and parsley in another bowl.
  • Place half the pasta in a foil-lined baking dish, then top with half the chicken mixture, and half the remaining mozzarella.
  • Add the remaining pasta, chicken and bechamel.
  • Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

    Doubled the recipe just fine. Used a stock pot instead of a casserole dish because of the volume. Added 1/2 hour more bake time because of the same volume.
    Wouldn't mind throwing in a couple pinches of hot pepper powder or flakes.
