High protein pasta with chicken, broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach in a delicious light and creamy sauce!

This pasta dish makes for the best quick and simple dinner when you’re craving some comfort food, but also want to pack in the protein and vegetables. The chicken and creamy bone broth sauce provide some great protein, and depending on the type of pasta you use it can also really boost the protein as well!

Besides the pasta, the rest of this dish is all made in one pan. I love a good one pan dinner for easy clean up and a simple prep! This high protein pasta is such a great staple weeknight dinner that the whole family will love. It’s’ creamy, flavorful, and made with healthy ingredients!
