This recipe came from a package of mozzarella cheese from Kroger. My husband kept asking me to try it for months, and I’m glad that I finally did. It is delicious!

- Spray 13 x 9 inch casserole pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cook noodles according to package directions.

- Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onions and garlic until transparent. Add spinach; cook and stir about 5 minutes. Add chicken and stir about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

-In large bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, egg, pesto, and Parmesan cheese until thoroughly blended. Add chicken and spinach mixture to bowl and stir to combine.
