Spaghetti, Garlic, and Spinach

Emeril Lagasse on the Food Network made a wonderful Italian Chicken with Spaghetti Bordelaise a number of years ago..I've made it a number of times and it's really good.  This time I was a little lazy and decided to just marinate the chicken pieces in Italian salad dressing for a couple of hours, coat them with Italian bread crumbs and bake them at 350 for 45 minutes. I pared down the spaghetti recipe and added spinach to it.  Emeril's recipe can be found here: 
My spaghetti recipe:

1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 green onions
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 Tbl butter
5 cups fresh baby spinach ( or more)
6 to 8 ounces spaghetti cooked in chicken broth ( reserve about a cup of the broth after cooking)
Parmesan cheese for garnishing

Saute the garlic and 2 of the green onions(sliced) in the olive oil until softened. Add the Italian seasoning and the wine. Stir in the cooked spaghetti and add the spinach leaves, a handful at a time until all have wilted .Stir in the butter and add some of the reserved chicken broth, if needed.  Slice the other two green onions and sprinkle on top with the parmesan.
