Dinner by request

I’ve made this dish a few times but the other night I got a special request from my 6 year old to pleeeeaaazzzzz make it again.

Fresh spinach
Grape tomatoes
Pasta of choice
Pesto sauce mix

Get water ready for pasta. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil then toss in the spinach. While the spinach begins to sauté clean and slice the tomatoes then toss those in the skillet. Following the directions for the pesto sauce get your water and oil started for the pesto mix. Then get 1 to 2 tablespoons of capers out, drain and rough chop. Toss those in with the spinach and tomatoes. Your water for the pasta should be ready for the pasta by now.

Once the pasta is cooked and drained, pour the pesto sauce over then add the spinach mixture and plate.

The whole meal took me less than 20 minutes to prepare and they couldn’t eat it fast enough.
Here’s all that was left.

Mmmmm, enjoy.

Right up my alley! And the 20 minutes part makes it even better.
