Pasta Delight

I was eager to try something different this week for dinner. I went to my favorite place for new recipes and found this. It was delightful and delicious. Even my kids ate every last bite! In addition to what the recipe calls for I added 1/2 t of basil and 1 t of oregano.

Angel Hair Pasta Delight

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped Vidalia or other sweet onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup water
1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach, chopped
2 cups chopped plum tomato
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast (about 1/2 pound)
1/4 cup chopped cooked bacon (about 2 slices)
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 cups hot cooked angel hair (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded Asiago cheese

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add water and spinach; cover and cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts.
Stir in tomato, chicken, bacon, and vinegar; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve over pasta; sprinkle with cheese.

4 servings (serving size: 1 cup spinach mixture, 1 cup pasta, and 1 tablespoon cheese)
