Spinach Dip Pasta

Creamy spinach dip turned into a main dish hit!

I made it one whole month and have posted each Monday! Go, me! I'm hoping to continue on this way for the full year. I'm in desperate need of some recipes for my meal plan that I have forgotten about. This is definitely one of those recipes. I think pretty much everyone in my family eats spinach dip and so the thought of combining it with chicken and pasta was super exciting to me. I'm so glad that it turned out too and we all really liked it. I am happy to finally get it posted so that I have a visual reminder that this recipe exists!

What you need:

  • 12 oz uncooked pasta like rotini or penne
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning (to taste)
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt (to taste)
  • 10 oz. prepared spinach dip
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup diced sweet peppers (I used red bell for color)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente. Drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Season chicken with Italian seasoning and garlic salt. 
  4. Add chicken to skillet and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through.
  5. Mix together spinach dip and milk.
  6. Chop cooked chicken into bite sized pieces.
  7. Stir together cooked pasta, spinach dip, chicken, and bell pepper.
  8. Pour into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish.
  9. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  10. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until cheese has melted and is golden brown.
