      I used a combo of spinach and regular fusilli instead of spaghetti for this and chose basil pesto. It is a lovely, comforting, simple and easy to put together dish which is also inexpensive to make for a weekday family meal. For me pasta is an indulgence and this most certainly hit the spot of my craving. Very good, quick recipe with overall healthy ingredients. This recipe is a nice option for a seasonal summer pasta lunch or dinner.
