1 (6 oz.) package fresh baby spinach, chopped
1/3 cup refrigerated pesto sauce
1 (15 oz.) jar Alfredo sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
12 oz. uncooked penne pasta, cooked according to package directions
2 1/2 cups rotisserie chicken, chopped
4 oz. pre-shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. paprika
Preheat oven to 375° F. Toss together spinach and pesto in a medium bowl.

Stir together cooked pasta, chicken, and remaining Alfredo mixture; spoon half of chicken mixture over
spinach mixture. Repeat layers once with remaining spinach mixture and chicken mixture.
