M & K Movie Night Pasta

M & K Movie Night Pasta
12 oz 100% whole wheat pasta
8 oz baby spinach, chopped
12 black olives, halved
1 tomato, chopped
1 can chick peas
1 bunch basil
1/4 cup pecans, toasted
1 large clove of garlic, minced in salt
6 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice

Make pesto in mini food processor with last 7 ingredients.  Cook pasta in salted water.  Meanwhile prep remaining ingredients.  Toss pasta with pesto and spinach.  Cover to wilt spinach with heat from pasta just a bit.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Serve with coarse salt. 

It must have been good because we ate too much.  Pecans were an experiment since we had limited choices in house.
