Pasta anyone???

Here is what I used to prepare this yummy healthy dish!
100% whole wheat pasta ( I used penne)
2 T olive oil
2 T pine nuts
1 carton of mushrooms
3 cloves of garlic crushed and chopped
8 kalamata olives ( halved)
1 tub of baby spinach leaves
10 halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1 jar of artichoke hearts in water
2 sliced grilled chicken ( optional)
Parmesan cheese to taste..

Put pot of water on to boil...
Saute in olive oil the garlic, pine nuts,  mushrooms , cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives and artichoke hearts on medium heat. Add grilled chicken to mixture.  When done cooking add spinach on top of mixture...turn the heat down low...let the spinach wilt 

PASTA...adding salt to the water once it starts to boil...add pasta...following cooking instructions on box.  Drain pasta...pour back in pan.  Now pour the chicken spinach mixture over the pasta.  Stir and serve adding parmesan cheese over top.

Let me know what you think ...will you try it!
Be well ..
Bisous, Tammy
