Chicken and Spinach Pasta

This week's recipe is from my friend, Holly. Holly has some of the most amazing and yummy recipes! I posted one of her other recipes a few months ago, Chicken Enchiladas, which is now one of my favorite dishes of all time. You should try it! Here is the recipe for her pasta:

Chicken and Spinach Pasta

1/3 cup roasted tomato and oregano salad dressing (or 2 Tbsp. Basil Pesto)
2 T. balsamic vinegar
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups cooked whole wheat penne pasta, drained
4 slices turkey bacon, cooked
3-4 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup red onion
3 big hand-fulls of baby spinach
12 grape tomatoes, halved
3 cups chopped rotisserie chicken breast meat
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Black Pepper to taste

Mix first 5 ingredients together, set aside. Cook and stir mushrooms with onions, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and tomatoes until spinach is wilted. Stir in chicken until heated through. Add noodles and mix. Add olive oil sauce. Top with bacon and cheese. Enjoy!
