Quick pasta Dinner


1 box of Whole Grain/Wheat Pasta (I used Ronzoni  13.25 oz)

1 broccoli crown

1 avocado

3 Cups chopped spinach leaves

3-4 TBSP lite italian dressing (I use Annie’s natural) any would do the trick

Cook pasta according to package directions. I used penne just because I like the shape, any shape would work.  While the pasta is cooking chop broccoli into small pieces. While draining pasta, place broccoli in the bottom of the same pan used for cooking pasta. Pour pasta back into the pan on  top  of the broccoli. Then cover and let the warm pasta steam the broccoli. While steaming, chop spinach and place in then bottom of the serving dish. Next, pour pasta and broccoli over spinach and let the warm pasta steam spinach. Cover and let sit while cubing your avocado. Stir in avocado and italian dressing and serve warm or chilled.  (I am sure you could add some black or kidney beans as well, play with it, make it your own.)
