Green Pesto Chicken in Spinach Fettuccine

A St. Paddy's Day Dish from Italy

While this recipe is admittedly more Italian than Irish, I love that it's a quick, healthy & hearty green food idea that adults and toddlers can enjoy!

A nice balance of spinach, basil, protein and carbs, it's a simple and healthy St. Patrick's Day meal.  A welcomed comfort food to bring to any pot luck dinner!

If you're feeling adventurous, try substituting the fettuccini for edamame spaghetti, mung bean rotini, or green lentil penne.  The basil pesto will offset the new vegetable taste.

1. Cook pasta as directed on packaging.

2. Cook chicken as directed on packaging.

3. Combine pasta, chicken & pesto in a dish and mix together.
4. Serve & Enjoy!
