Chicken Alfredo with Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

8 oz. uncooked fettuccine

1 (1.6) package Alfredo sauce mix (I think Knorr is best)

1 1/2 cups milk

1 tbsp. butter

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg (optional)

2 (6 oz.) packages refrigerated grilled chicken breast strips (or I just cook chicken with salt and pepper)

1 oz. piece of Parmesan cheese shaved (or use the grated in a tub-not the powder)

1/2 cup thinkly sliced fresh baby spinach

1/3 cup oil packed dried tomatoes, thinly sliced

Cook fettucine according to package directions; drain.

Meanwhile, whisk together Alfredo sauce mix and milk in a large sauce pan. Add butter. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, whisking often. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Stir in pepper and nutmeg, if desired. Combine sauce, chicken strips, and hot cooked pasta in a large bowl;toss well.
