Pesto Spinach Pasta

I created this last night and it was delicious. You could serve as a main dish or even as a side dish. You could also add sliced chicken breast. It is very versatile. Be creative - your taste buds will love you.

2-3 c dry whole grain bow tie pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp basil pesto
2 c baby spinach
1/3 c shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt and pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain water. Add olive oil and toss well. Add pesto and toss well. Add spinach and allow to wilt slightly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add mozzarella cheese and cover until cheese melts.
