Chicken Alfredo with Spinach and Sun-dried Tomatoes

This is one of those meals that got thrown together because of the ingredients I had on hand but it makes regular appearances at our table now. It’s got whole wheat pasta, lean protein, and some veggies. Easily justified as a meal on busy nights. If you already have the diced chicken made, this will be even easier! Another bonus is that the ingredients don’t need to be exact. Small adjustments, +/­-, will still taste great.
