Chicken & Spinach Veggie Pasta Bake

I needed to use up some ingredients and make a dish that would last me a few days with how busy this week at work was going to be. It is one of my easier dishes, and smells so good as it is cooking in the oven. You can substitute the meats and the sauce, if you would like.
