Weeknight Lemon Butter Pasta

Recipe provided by: The Friendly Feast

“This dish is filling, flavorful, lemony goodness! The noodles are satisfying without being too heavy, and the vegan chicken provides a nice bite to liven up the pasta. Spinach brings loads of vitamins and a beautiful green color to the dish. I love topping this with Follow Your Heart vegan parmesan, but it’s optional.”
