I love making this when I'm in a hurry, it comes together so quickly, is nutritious, low in carbs and very tasty, thanks to the pesto. Use any pesto you like.
The amount of spinach is a bit of a guess because I usually just throw some frozen spinach into the pan which seems to be right for two servings.
