    2      tablespoons   dry white wine

    2      tablespoons   fresh grated Parmesan cheese
    4      cups          cooked linguine -- (al dente)
                         Salt and pepper to taste
 
 Cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips. Flour liberally.
 
 In a medium skillet, heat butter on high heat until hot, but not brown. Add
 floured chicken strips and saute 3 minutes on each side, or until light brown
 and just cooked through (no more than 5 minutes on each side).
 
 Remove from heat and pour off excess butter. Add garlic, basil, sun-dried
 tomatoes, pine nuts and spinach. Return to low heat and toss until spinach
 wilts. Deglaze with wine and chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Add whipping
 cream and 1 cup Parmesan cheese.
 
 Add cooked linguine and toss until hot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Divide
 equally between two bowls. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Makes 2
 servings.
