    Mommy of 3 (DH included)'s Note:

    So easy, so quick!! This is something I came up with while trying to figure out what to do with a packet of pesto sauce seasonings. I'm sure, should you have a favorite pesto sauce recipe, that that would work just as well. I used the thinner short fettuccine noodles. I am thinking of adding zucchini next time and some garlic salt (doesn't it just make everything a little better ;)).

      This is a great quick pasta for a weeknight! I used slightly less chicken (I had one pound) and since I chose the recipe for the Healthy Choices ABC game I decided to cut out some of the oil. I used 1/8 c oil 2/3 c water in the pesto, and toasted the pine nuts in cooking spray thus omitting another Tbsp of oil. The spinach was wet from rinsing, so it still sauteed nicely. I agree with Mommy of 3 that this needs a little something else, though--I added garlic powder and salt to the pot, and to my own portion I added crushed red pepper flakes. Both were great! Thanks so much for posting this!
