Every now and then, my friends and I gather at one of our houses, and each prepares a dish, so my friend, Aamal, prepares this so delicious pasta ( actually her cook prepares it :-) ) and every time we gather, we ask her to bring us this pasta.. It has some bahraini spice,"called "daqqous" , but the recipe is not bahraini, but it tastes soo good.. we call it now "Aamal's pasta :-)
Prepare pasta as directed on the package
Mean while, In a pot, sauté the onions & the garlic in some olive oil & butter till translucent.
Add mushroom and stir.
Add spinach and stir.
Add sour cream and cream cheese.
Add the salt, pepper and daqqous.
When the mixture boils, add the pasta ( add 3/4th and see if need to add more ) and chicken. Add chicken stock to get a thick sauce (add extra stock if needed).
Transfer pasta mix to a baking dish. Top it with Mozzarella cheese.
Bake in preheated oven on 240C degree for about 10-15 minutes till it boils all together and top becomes golden.
You can prepare it even without the chicken If you lik,e or add extra chicken if you like more meat in it .. so it's up to you.
If you have any chicken left overs, you can immediatelly prepare this pasta with no time at all..
I don't like sour cream allot, so I use 250ml sour cream and 250ml whipping cream, and about 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice.
