Creamy pesto over lemon pepper pappardelle

Love this vegetarian dish and I make it often because I can throw it together in a few minutes. We added some warm rotisserie chicken to the leftovers the next day and it was really yummy too. The pesto mix from Tastefully Simple is one of my favorite products, it is my go-to pesto and I have been using it for years. The directions on the bottle of the pesto mix say to prepare it in the microwave, but you all know I have big time issues with using the microwave :so I promise you it turns out just as good on the stove. The lemon pepper noodles give this dish a little extra kick but I have served this over regular noodles and it is still the yummiest.

  1. Heat olive oil, water, and pesto mix over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add soup, milk, and cheese.
  3. Stir until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Continue to heat on low for 20 minutes, adding more milk for a thiner consistency.
  5. Throw in clean spinach a minute before serving, giving it time to wilt and mix into the sauce.
  6. Serve over prepared noodles.
