Ingredients

2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
12 oz (360 g) boneless skinless chicken, cut in 3/4-inch (2 cm) pieces
2 carrots, thinly sliced
2 stalks of celery, thinly sliced
2 garlic gloves, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) dried basil
1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes
2 tbsp (30 mL) tomato paste
2 tbsp (30 mL) all-purpose flour
3 cups (750 mL) Milk
1 cup (250 mL) small pasta (shells, macaroni or bow ties)
1 can (19 oz/540 mL) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups (500 mL) fresh baby spinach
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Freshly grated Canadian Parmesan cheese

Preparation

In large saucepan, heat half of oil over medium heat; brown chicken in batches, adding more oil as necessary to prevent sticking. Transfer to bowl and set aside. Add remaining oil to pan; sauté carrots, celery, garlic, onion, basil and oregano for about 5 min or until softened.

Add tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits stuck to pan. Whisk flour into milk; gradually whisk into pan and return to boil, stirring often. Stir in pasta; reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 8 min or until pasta is almost tender.

Add chicken, along with any accumulated juices, and beans; cook for about 5 min longer or until chicken is no longer pink inside and pasta is tender. Remove from heat and stir in spinach just until wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Tips

For the Adventurous:
Add 1/4 tsp (1 mL) hot pepper flakes with herbs, substitute chickpeas for the kidney beans and top each bowl with a slice of bread topped with shredded Canadian Provolone cheese and broil.
