Pasta with Spinach Pesto

This is a perfect dish for a night when you are really limited on time. If you have kids this is also a great way to get them to eat spinach. My toddler gobbled this up.

Handful of mushrooms

red pepper flakes (optional)

4 cups of fresh spinach

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp of nutritional yeast

1/4 cup of pine nuts

2) Saute mushrooms on a skillet.

3) For the sauce, blend all the ingredients in a blender

4) Add pasta and sauce to the skillet with the mushrooms. Stir until heated through.
