Kale and Spinach Pesto make this pasta dish spectacular! The pesto is loaded with nutrients and adds tremendous flavor to any dish.

Yield: 4-6 Servings


In a large pot of boiling and salted water, cook pasta according to package directions.

In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil and cook the pancetta until browned. Add the peas and cook for another few minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

When pasta is finished, drain (reserving 1 cup of pasta water) and add pasta to the sauté pan with the pancetta and peas.

Add a half cup of pesto and the Romano cheese. Stir to incorporate all ingredients. Add additional pesto to taste and pasta water if more liquid is needed.
