I was eyeing the Tubes & Cubes... I ended up making a different one for my boyfriend from Crazy Plates last night... I forget what it was called though. It was okay, but mine was WAY better. I just had left overs for lunch MMMMM. I only made half a recipe, but I think I am going to make more on the weekend since I have everything to make it!

Sauce
2 tbsp basil pesto
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp liquid honey
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 cups uncooked whole wheat penne noodles (about 8 oz)
4 slices reduced-sodium bacon, chopped
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup chopped red onions
3 big handfuls baby spinach leaves
12 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast (see tip in margin)
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan or Romano cheese, or
1/2 cup crumbled light feta cheese (2 oz)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

To prepare sauce, whisk together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Cook penne noodles according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.

While pasta is boiling, cook bacon in a large, non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes. Remove and discard 1 tbsp bacon drippings from skillet. Add mushrooms and onions to skillet. Cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add spinach leaves and tomatoes. Cook until spinach is wilted. Stir in chicken and cook just until chicken is heated through. Add cooked penne noodles and mix well. Add reserved sauce and mix again. Remove skillet from heat. Sprinkle pasta with Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

Serve immediately.

I REALLY recommend the cookbooks, I have yet to cook something that disappointed me. If you buy from the site you get one free (awesome x-mas present). The Crazy Plates book is great too, if you have the money order it as well.
