Pasta With Sun Dried Tomato Pesto And Spinach


          Pasta appears in our dinner menu at least once in two weeks. When I made Sun Dried Tomato Pesto some time back, I had used some of it in a sandwich and some in this Pasta. To make it a little more nutritious, I have added some spinach and olives too. Once you  have your pesto ready, this Pasta With Sun Dried Tomato Pesto And Spinach is just so simple to put together..

Need To Have

  • Whole Wheat Penne Pasta - 2 cups
  • Chopped Spinach - 2 cups
  • Black Olives - 15, sliced
  • Sun Dried Tomato Pesto - 4 to 5 tablespoons
  • Salt And Pepper To Taste
  • Grated Parmesan - 1/4 cup or more according to your preference

Method


          Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box, drain and keep. Heat some olive oil, add the chopped spinach and saute till it wilts and is cooked a little.


         Now add the cooked pasta, mix, then add the sun dried tomato pesto, olives, salt and pepper and mix it well. Finally add the grated cheese, mix and serve.
