12 oz fettuccine pasta noodles
2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried oregano

2. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet over low heat. Add the garlic, oregano, parsley, basil, marjoram, and red pepper flakes; cook for 1 minute while stirring constantly.

4. While it is simmering, cook the pasta al dente (according to box directions) and drain well.
5. Reduce the heat as low as it goes. Slowly add the Parmesan cheese stirring to melt. Add the spinach and continue cooking until wilted. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, cooked chicken, and cooked pasta stirring to warm. For best results serve promptly.
