Full recipe in video below


  • 1 pound ground chicken or ground turkey

  • 1 cup chopped red onion

  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes

  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 pkg Fiber Gourmet Pasta (to order) Code JENNSWWJOURNEY

  • 2 cup chicken broth

  • 1 cup marinara sauce- If on WW use a 0pt

  • ½ cup whole milk

  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach

  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish

  • ½ cup low-moisture part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

  1. Heat a high-sided skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring often to break up the meat, until cooked through and beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add onion, tomatoes, Italian seasoning and salt; cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened and the tomatoes are breaking down, 4 to 5 minutes.

  2. Stir in pasta, broth, marinara and cream; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is al dente, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in spinach (in batches, if necessary), basil and mozzarella; cover and cook until the spinach wilts and the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Garnish with more basil and Parmesan, if using.
