Pesto Fettuccine With Chicken, Spinach and Roasted Red Peppers

“So easy, so quick!! This is something I came up with while trying to figure out what to do with a packet of pesto sauce seasonings. I'm sure, should you have a favorite pesto sauce recipe, that that would work just as well. I used the thinner short fettuccine noodles. I am thinking of adding zucchini next time and some garlic salt (doesn't it just make everything a little better ;)).”
