Chicken N Spinach Stuffed Jumbo Shell Pasta

When I saw the jumbo shell in the grocery store, this recipe just popped instantly in my mind at that moment and here is this dish. Pasta is my family favorite and there is no problem for everyone in just falling in love with yet another pasta dish and this recipe is a success. This is such a stomach-filling dish, you will feel already full with just eating only five shells. This is such an awesome and tasty dish where kids would never say no to this kind of cheesy dish. Just try this recipe and you would know for yourself.

Jumbo Shell Pasta - 15
Boneless Chicken Breast - 2 halves
Mushroom Chopped - 1cup
Spinach - 1 cup Chopped
Garlic - 4 Cloves minced
Parmesan Cheese - 1/2 cup
Mozzarella Cheese - 1 cup
Cream of Mushroom Soup - 1 can
Heavy Whip Cream - 1/2 cup
Oil - 3 tsp
Butter - 2tsp
Breadcrumps - 1/2 cup
Pepper and Salt as required

Boil the pasta shell according to the instruction in the box and drain the water and place individually in a plate to avoid sticking to each other.
Coat the chicken piece with the breadcrumbs and fry in the oil in a non-stick skillet with little salt and pepper on both sides until it turns brown color. Remove and cut the chicken to small cubes.
In the same skillet, add 1 tsp of minced garlic and saute it and add mushroom with salt and pepper and add the spinach and cook until it's done. Add half the can of mushroom soup with a splash of water. Add the chicken pieces and mix well.
Now we have to make a sauce in a separate pan by heating the butter and adding garlic and saute them, add the remaining soup with little water, add salt and pepper. Last add the cream and parmesan cheese, if needed add dried parsley and basil and now sauce is ready.
Pre-heat oven to 375* F
Stuff the chicken and spinach in the shell and place in the oven safe bowl and pour the sauce on top of the shell and cover it with the mozzarella cheese and bake for 20 mins.
Serve hot!! Enjoy!!
