Chicken Pesto Pasta and Spinach Squash Pizza

Last night, I was thinking about dinner and the very small amount of chicken left in the fridge from shabbos. I knew it wasn't enough for both myself and my husband, but I really didn't want it to go to waste either.

A while back, I'd found a recipe for pesto chicken pasta. Pesto + chicken + sliced black olives + pasta. I made it once using leftover grilled chicken, and haven't made it since. But it's a really yummy recipe, and I don't make it nearly often enough.
So I made it last night. It was SUPERB and easy.

Then tonight, I thought briefly about making rice and beans, which is one of our staple dinners, but then I remembered it was the night before a fast, and I had fresh spinach in the veggie drawer that I wanted to use.

And it's been so long since I made pizza.

So pizza it was.

With spinach and mushrooms and butternut squash (which was also hanging out in the veggie drawer for a while) and light sprinkling of mozzarella.

The gooey shot. :)

I was drooling over your cupcakes when I noticed that you'd posted a recipe. I got exciting, thinking it was a cupcake recipe. I skipped over the title of said recipe, and was shocked and horrified when to find that the first ingredient in your beautiful baked goods was...pasta. That'll learn me not to skim things.
