    Penne Pasta With Chicken - Olivia’s Cafe, Old Key West Resort

    Olivia’s Café is a casual dining restaurant at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. The menu includes Florida seafood and American cuisine with a slight Caribbean twist. Breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes are all served family style. This pasta dish is from the Orlando Sentinel’s “Thought You’d Never Ask” archives. The quick and easy dish was on the restaurant’s 2002 menu. The recipe is a breeze to make.

    The recipe calls for a mixture of Parmesan and asiago cheeses. Be sure to use freshly grated Parmesan and not the granulated stuff that is sold in canisters. There’s no comparison in flavor, and the latter is loaded with sodium. Asiago cheese is a slightly firm Italian cheese with a nutty flavor. It’s made from whole or part-skim cow’s milk and comes in small wheels with glossy rinds. The yellow interior has many small holes.

    Baby spinach leaves are quite tender and have a flat, spade shape. They are small enough to add whole and work well with the penne pasta.
    Quick tips: The chicken can be grilled ahead of time, and the pasta can be cooked and held until ready to assemble this dish.
