spinach stuffed chicken + pesto pasta

What to do with a 5oz container of fresh spinach on the brink of expiration?
We stuffed this chicken* with almonds, red onions, crushed sesame melba crackers, tomatoes, bel paese and spinach. I had some leftover chardonnay that I put in the dish in the oven, and with ten minutes left on the timer, I added of a few strips of smoked gouda to melt over the top. To the leftover stuffing, I added jarred pesto to create a sauce for the pasta.


*this was a really funny process. I wish I had video :)
