Smoked Chicken Fettuccine

This one is for all of you who love creamy, cheesy pasta! Yes, I love it too and it puts a huge smile on my face. I made this for dinner. It’s quick, tasty and has a heck of a lot of spinach which tasted so good in the sauce; I was surprised I was eating it. For all the vegetarians, don’t be disheartened by the chicken, you can use mushrooms instead 🙂 Hope you enjoy this one!
