Spaghetti and Spinach Pesto

This pesto spaghetti dish is made with spinach for a unique spin on a classic. It can be served up as a meatless main dish or add some diced cooked chicken. It’s a very simple yet comforting and delicious dish. Top with feta and serve with a side salad for a colorful meal.
