Grilled Chicken Florentine Pasta

Grilled Chicken Florentine Pasta
Here's a tasty dish that combines a bit a summer with a bit of my favorite... pasta!  The chicken is grilled and added to the remaining ingredients with a creamy white sauce. It comes close to an alfredo type dish and is quite tasty...

I changed up the recipe by using shallots instead of garlic and since I didn't have the whole milk, I substituted 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup skim milk - that should equal whole milk, right :-)  I also love the color and flavor from the baby spinach. 

Hope you enjoy it if you try!
