1/4 cup walnuts, toasted
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup loosely-packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 of a 6-ounce package fresh baby spinach (about 4 cups loosely-packed)
3 cups Prego® Heart Smart Ricotta Parmesan Italian Sauce 
1 package (1 pound) penne pasta (about 5 cups), cooked and drained
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (optional)

Place the walnuts and garlic into a food processor or blender. Cover and process until the mixture is finely chopped. Add the basil and spinach and process until the mixture forms a smooth paste.
Heat the sauce and the walnut mixture in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
Place the penne into a large bowl.  Add the sauce mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the cheese, if desired.
Recipe Note: If you're using a blender, reserve 1/4 cup pasta cooking liquid and add it to the walnut mixture for easier blending.

The Zesty Citrus-Thyme Marinade really makes this recipe. The kabobs go nicely over a bed of rice -brown basmati and wild rice would be a good blend. Heat the remaining marinade and drizzle on top of the kabobs before serving to flavor the rice as well.
