    internetnut's Note:

    Dr. Travis Stork's said it's ok to have a glass of wine with this meal. If I recall he may have suggeted red. I found this recipe on the Rachael Ray Show. The recipe came from Dr. Travis Stork's. Made this for my families dinner! My hubby loved this, my newphew and I liked it. When I made this I opted to used store prepared Pesto, so I added minced garlic to my veggies. For the pasta I used Wegman's whole grain pasta, I used fresh snap peas in place of the asparagus. I used the spinach and opted to add the cooked chicken. I did add alot of shredded Parmesan cheese maybe 5oz or less. Plus I did add some Sea Salt for flavor.
