Penne Rosa

I have had this recipe on my Pinterest board for a long time. Now that I have made it I am kicking myself for not making it sooner. It was amazing! We've been to Noodles & Co restaurant before and have seen other people eating this and always say we're getting that next time because it looks so good, but we can't ever remember what it's called when we return so we haven't actually ever tried the restaurant version. I hope my version is just as good if not better!

1 (1 lb) box penne pasta
1 lb boneless chicken breast
1 (8 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach (thawed and drained)
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes (drained)
2 (16 ounce) jars alfredo sauce 
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

Cook chicken and cut into small pieces.  Boil noodles in large pot.  

In a large saucepan mix Alfredo sauce, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and spinach. Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes.

Drain pasta and add to sauce mix. Also, mix in the chicken. Stir and serve immediately.
