Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  • While pasta is cooking, cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Set bacon on paper towels to drain.

  • Season chicken with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add seasoned chicken; cook and stir until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate.

  • Melt butter in the large skillet. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook until juices start to release, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Mix in paprika, Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper flakes. Slowly add cream; bring mixture to a boil. Mix in Parmesan cheese, bacon, chicken, and parsley until well combined. Stir in pasta.
