Recipe of the Week: Fresh Pesto Pasta

It has always bugged me when I watch people cook and they follow a recipe but do not measure right or they make up the recipe in their head and cannot write it down because they just do whatever they want. I have finally come to the point of... throw whatever you want in a pan and hope for the best.  Since it was delicious I now have to try to figure out what I did...here it goes!

You need:
Angel Hair Pasta - cooked
Fresh tomatoes - the ones we call little cutie tomatoes
1 Can of tomatoes with the juice - whatever you have on hand (crushed, whole, etc)
A few bug hand fulls of Spinach
Other things to add when on hand - black olives, Kalamatta Olives, fresh herbs

In a big pan, add some EVOO, a few huge Tablespoons of Pesto, and fresh tomatoes.  Stir for a few minutes on medium heat.  

Add the can of tomatoes.  Stir.  Add the precooked Angel Hair Pasta.  Stir.  Add more Pesto to taste.  Add spinach.  Toss.  Let sit a few minutes.  Toss and Serve.
