Pasta has always been a go-to meal for me.  For my birthday this year, I went out to a local restaurant and discovered they had a tuscan chicken pasta and I just knew I had to give it a try! It sounded right up my alley with a creamy sauce, sundried tomatoes, and spinach.  The pasta turned out incredible and since then, I have been wanting to try giving it a go right at home!

When I found out Bialetti was sending me a brand new set of pots and pans, I immediately thought about the tuscan chicken pasta and knew that would be the recipe I would make to break them in! The whole meal can be made in just one skillet and it takes just 30 minutes to make start to finish!

Bialetti sent me a 10 piece set of their new Impact cookware line.  It featured a Nanotec™ infused nonstick interior that is coupled with a “micro-divot” textured surface.  These micro-divots are able to create micro air pockets between the food and the cooking surface which helps with easier food release.  I love that the Nanotec infused nonstick surface is safe to use with metal utensils and oven safe up to 400º F.  Impact is available on amazon.com in a 10-piece set, which includes 8” and 10” sauté pans, 2 qt. and 2.5 qt. covered sauce pans, 11” covered deep sauté pan, and a 5 qt. covered Dutch oven for $169.99.  Open stock pieces are also available for an MSRP of $29.99 – $49.99 and include a 10” sauté pan, 8”/10” 2-pk sauté pans, 12” sauté pan, 11” deep sauté pan with cover, 11” stir fry, 2 qt. sauce pan, 5 qt. Dutch oven and a 10” griddle.

Honestly, this set was a HUGE step up from my previous cookware set and with how much cooking I do regularly, I genuinely love it! It is all really high quality and a joy to cook with.  This set would be great as a gift too!

Tips and tricks on this tuscan chicken pasta recipe

  • The red pepper flakes are optional.  I liked the little bit of spice the brought to the dish but it tastes great without them too if you aren’t a fan of spicier foods.
  • If you don’t like sundried tomatoes, you can sub in roasted bell peppers or omit the tomatoes completely.
  • If you are watching your carbs, you can sub in zoodles instead of pasta or skip the noodles completely and add in another chicken breast while cooking.  Just the chicken plain is really tasty.
