What should I make for dinner? That is what I found myself asking my family recently. Ron chimed in — You haven’t made that Chicken Recipe with the angel hair pasta and white wine sauce that you used to make when we first moved to Florida. For a minute, I couldn’t recall what recipe that could be, but then it came back to me. He was referring to my Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken Spinach and White Wine Sauce.

Along with the memories of this Chicken and Pasta Recipe, came memories of our transition from Pennsylvania to Florida. Memories of living on the beach while our house was being built and I reminisced just how scary it was to move away from family for the first time.

Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken, Spinach and Wine SauceI recall looking forward to dinner around the family table every night more than ever. That meant that Ron would be home and I would have someone to talk to besides a toddler and a 9 month old. I could whip up this recipe for Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken Spinach and White Wine Sauce in the small condo kitchen and we could sit on the deck with a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset while enjoying a restaurant style meal.

I am not sure how or why I stopped making this dish, but everyone in our home is in agreement — it’s so good to see it back around our family table!

We have enjoyed creating recipes with stories around Gallo Sweet Wine Blend and the Gallo Merlot.   I enjoyed the Gallo Sweet Wine Blend, this sweet, light-bodied wine is best served chilled and pairs well with fresh fruit, light salads and most brunch fare. It was not only perfect in this recipe, but it paired really well with the light pasta and chicken dish. Ron completely enjoyed the Gallo Merlot, the full-bodied Merlot is all about taste. It’s tough not to enjoy the blended flavors of black cherry, ripe plum and hints of oak that create a velvety richness. The Merlot has become one of Ron’s new favorites.

So glad your husband remembered this dish so you could share it today. I’m sure my husband would love it too.


Liz March 23, 2014 at 6:47 am

What a delightfully delicious pasta! This would go over so well at my house, too!!!


Alice // Hip Foodie Mom March 23, 2014 at 8:03 am

I love this pasta!!! Looks so delicious!!! and I love that you made a family favorite and one that you haven’t made in years! Pinned and can’t wait to try this one!


Shannon @VillageGirlBlog March 23, 2014 at 9:17 am

What great dish! It sounds so light, but totally restaurant style decadent. Chicken, spinach and white whine are always winners in my book.


Alida March 23, 2014 at 9:18 am

I can see why this would be a family favorite…simple, easy and it looks SO good!


Katie March 23, 2014 at 9:21 am

I love when “old” recipes resurface! Every once in a while it is kind of nice to bring them back to life…especially when they’re something yummy like this pasta dish…pretty sure I could eat a bowl of that every day!


Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips March 23, 2014 at 10:10 am

This looks fantastic, Isabel, and definitely more enjoyable to share with the whole family (including your husband) than just the little ones!


Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious March 23, 2014 at 10:37 am

Cannot wait to try this. It’s my type of thing, stuffed with greens. I’m going to use my beloved chicken thighs in it, but I promise not to tweak it any more than that. Oh, who am I kidding. I’ll put toasted pine nuts on top, too. I cannot wait for dinner! :)


Liz March 23, 2014 at 11:28 am

Nice recipe. Thanks so much. Love pasta. Have a good week.


Samantha @FerraroKitchen March 23, 2014 at 12:19 pm

Adorable story and I LOVE this dish! This is something I would make any time of the week..comforting and classic!


Lori @ Foxes Love Lemons March 23, 2014 at 12:26 pm

Isn’t it funny how we sometimes forget about recipes we love? It makes me so sad when I remember a long-forgotten dish, but then I love the chance to make it again and take a trip down memory lane. I guess that’s the thing about cooking for a living (at least for me), I make something new every single night. We rarely have repeats.

Love this recipe. It looks like something that would be perfect to whip up for a casual dinner party with a few friends.

We’re always busy trying new dishes that we forget about old favorites sometimes. Its like coming home after an old trip. Familiar surroundings just make you want to relax and enjoy!


Hezzi-D March 23, 2014 at 1:05 pm

I am such a sucker for pasta in a good wine sauce. This looks delicious! I agree about forgetting favorite recipes. Often I can’t recall them until someone asks me why I haven’t made something in so long!


Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen March 23, 2014 at 1:32 pm

I love chicken and spinach together, then you add pasta and a white wine sauce? Umm yes please!!!


Jennifer/mealdiva March 23, 2014 at 1:50 pm

I’m making this for dinner tonight & I know that my entire famiky will devour it! Yum!


Sarah March 23, 2014 at 3:24 pm

Mmm, and this looks easy to make vegetarian too!


Wendy (The Weekend Gourmet) March 23, 2014 at 6:58 pm

This looks so good…and perfect for a busy weeknight. Need to buy another bottle of the sweet white blend, though!


Constance @FoodieArmyWife March 23, 2014 at 8:31 pm

This looks AMAZING Isabel! How gorgeous!


Courtney @ Neighborfood March 23, 2014 at 8:37 pm

I love rediscovering old favorites. It’s like they’re brand new again. I’ve really been getting into angel hair pasta and this looks like a great vehicle to satisfy the craving!


Melanie | Melanie Makes March 23, 2014 at 8:38 pm

I love when my husband reminds me of dishes that I haven’t made in awhile. They’re always the good ones! This looks absolutely divine!


Shaina March 23, 2014 at 9:37 pm

So many yummy flavors! The white wine sauce brings everything together wonderfully.


Sarah | Curious Cuisiniere March 24, 2014 at 12:02 pm

I love those simple dishes that remind you to just kick back and relax! Beautiful pasta!


Nancy @ gottagetbaked March 24, 2014 at 3:50 pm

Good thing Ron chimed in with that excellent request so that you could share it with all of us! This pasta looks delicious, Isabel. I love every ingredient you used in this dish. I’m printing this out so that I can make it for me and Tony!


Amy March 28, 2014 at 8:44 am

Love the sound of this dish!

I know that experience of a new place with young children. My move to NJ from SF was a trying transition. At least your husband came home for dinner! Mine was gone for weeks at a time!


Friend of Rivendell April 21, 2014 at 10:44 pm

I stumbled upon your website last week and read this recipe. It sounded so amazing. Tried it out on the family two nights ago and it did not disappoint! So delicious! I have been searching for an “Italian” type dish that was different, but still rich and satisfying. This absolutely fit the bill. Bravo!
