The following pasta recipe is called Spring Pasta. It is simple to prepare and flavourful. It also looks lovely when served. A great way to use some of that early spinach!
2 Tbsp Basil Pesto
2 Tbsp Balsmaic Vinegar
1/4 tsp Pepper
About 2 cups uncooked pasta- I like Penne
4 slices bacon ( I used sodium reduced )
3 cups mushrooms
I cup onion
3 big handfuls baby spinach
12 or so cherry tomatoes, halved
2 grilled chicken breasts
Mix first 3 ingrediants together, set aside. Cook pasta.
While pasta is cooking, cook bacon until crisp. Don’t drain the fat add mushrooms and onions, cook about 5 minutes until veggies begin to soften. Add spinach leaves and tomatoes. Cook until spinach is wilted. Add chicken, cooked pasta and reserved sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan or Feta cheese.
