Whole Wheat Pasta Shells with spinach, roasted tomatoes, artichokes, & chicken

This meal was created off the top of my head and it was a great one! 

Whole Wheat Pasta Shells with Spinach, Roasted Tomatoes, Artichokes, & Chicken in a White Wine Reduction.


  • Whole Wheat Medium Pasta Shells
  • Can of Artichoke Hearts (in water)
  • Grape/Cherry Tomatoes
  • Spinach
  • Chicken
  • Garlic
  • White Wine
  • Dried Basil & Parsley
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Olive Oil


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wash & cut tomatoes in half.  Place on baking sheet and toss with a little olive oil and kosher salt.  Place in oven until tomatoes are juicing–10/15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile in a deep saucepan, saute olive oil & garlic.  Saute sliced pieces of chicken in pan (seasoned with salt & pepper).  Once the chicken is cooked through, add some wine (1/2  cup?).  The heat should be on pretty high at this point. 
  • Add the roasted tomatoes, chopped artichokes, parmesan cheese (about a handful) & dried parsley & basil to the pan.  Allow to cook for a little bit…10 minutes or so.  Add handfuls of spinach and place lid on pan to allow the spinach to wilt down.
  • In a seperate pot, boil water.  Add salt & the pasta shells.  Cook as directed by the package.
  • Once pasta is cooked, drain the pasta and place the pasta back in pot.  Add the mixture from the pan and mix all around.
  • Serve and top with parmesan cheese if desired!

  1. Yum! I could dig in to a bowl of that, especially if I had marathons in my past and present. I always find it interesting, though, how you and your sister have greens with tomato sauce. We NEVER do that in my house, it’s like against some Italian law of my grandmother

  2. yummy. do you just want to come up to new england and cook for me?! haha, i keep telling myself i’m going to make this stuff but then get too lazy 🙂

  3. That looks delicious! I’ve never been a huge pasta person but my roommate has been whipping up whole wheat pasta lately and I am a FAN!
