Pasta dishes are a quick weeknight meal, but we are often at a loss for creating something different. This Greek Chicken Pasta dish is so flavorful and, most importantly, simple to make.

Spring is coming, and it’s a great time to lighten up the lunchtime routine. This recipe makes a great pack-ahead lunch and is designed for easy substitutions. Leftover chicken would work just as well, as would brown rice instead of the quinoa or baby spinach instead of the romaine. In a pinch, using a store-bought rotisserie chicken would be a great way to get enough meat for a week’s worth of lunches.
