Chicken, Pesto, and Cheese Pasta

Tonight I used part of the roast chicken I cooked last night in a new way.  I made an easy, quick pasta dish that we enjoyed having for supper.  This made enough for Jacob and I plus lunch leftovers for tomorrow.  (If Art had been here, it would have been a perfect amount for the three of us.  Art is out of town.  We sure miss having supper with him!)

1/4 13 oz box of whole wheat spaghetti
1 cup diced cooked chicken
1 cup torn fresh spinach
1 Tab basil pesto
3 Tab grated Parmesan
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and return to pot.  Stir in chicken, spinach, and pesto.  Heat covered over medium heat until spinach wilts and chicken is heated through- about 8 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
