Seriously though….what is better that throwing everything into one pot and having it taste completely awesome? These one pot meals are so trendy right now….and this garlic spinach pasta is a huge hit! I used whole grain linguine which is higher in fiber—so a little will fill you up quicker. One serving of this pasta is just a tad over 300 calories…serve it up with some grilled chicken or shrimp and dinner is done:)

We still do our meal planning—so everyone gets to pick a meal of the week. This was peanut’s pick last week—I made it along side of a super easy oven breaded chicken that was perfect. Tasted like a chicken parmesan….but way easier!
