Start boiling your water to cook your pasta. Cook your pasta al dente and add the other cup of spinach. DO NOT STRAIN the pasta. Pour out some of the pasta water leaving 1/4 cup of pasta water in your pot. Pasta water is liquid gold, the starchy water will bind everything together. Pour in your avocado pesto and mix around gently coating your pasta while it simmers. Once your liquid has absorbed into the pasta then it is done.

Optional meat dish:
Chicken breast
Chile powder
Parsley
3 limes

With the chicken, I squirted them with the fresh limes, chile powder, and parsley. Baked them at 375 for 20 minutes. When the pasta was cooked I placed this on top. DELICIOUS!!!!!
