Your family will love this amazing pasta dish. Add the sliced chicken and baby spinach leaves to a large skillet over medium heat with some olive oil. Cook your pasta al dente so there's still a nice bite to it. You can use mushrooms, broccoli, artichokes, courgettes, eggplants etc. During fasting time (or for vegans) of course I don't add the chicken and I don't use cheese in the pesto and it is fantastic.
