Tuscan Chicken Mac and Cheese

Negotiations over who has rights to which leftovers generally proceed fairly cordially in our home—unless those leftovers happen to be this Tuscan Chicken Mac and Cheese, in which case I call dibs.

A creamy, colorful skillet of whole wheat pasta noodles, vibrant sun-dried tomatoes, juicy pieces of herby chicken breast, and fresh spinach, all wrapped in a velvety cheese sauce, this Italian spin on the ultimate comfort classic will have members of your family jostling for extra servings.

Now that Ben and I are both working from home full time, figuring out lunches took a few weeks of adjustment (seriously, we’re out of food, AGAIN? How much do you eat?), but we hit a decent rhythm.

Then, this mac and cheese with chicken happened.

How it usually goes: I make a big, healthy pasta recipe like this Tuscan chicken mac and cheese one or two nights a week. We eat a portion for dinner, then Ben eats most of the leftovers for lunch. I’m usually happy with something like this Italian Farro Salad for my lunch, and no one goes hangry.
