I love easy weeknight recipes. This was definitely that! It was pretty tasty too. Nothing to write home about but I had a bag of spinach, some pine nuts on hand and prosciutto was BOGO at the grocery store so it was definitely worth it. If you are watching your portions, you will definitely need a salad or side item to fill you up.
