Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sweat the onion slices for 2 minutes.
Stir in the garlic and sweat for an additional 1 minute.
Stir in the baby spinach leaves and cook for 2 minutes, constantly stirring, or until the leaves are completely wilted.
Add the almond milk and stir. Continue cooking, covered, for about 5 minutes or until the milk starts to bubble.
As soon as the milk starts bubbling, stir in the pasta. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until pasta is al dente and most of the liquid is absorbed.
Remove from heat and stir in the red pesto, cooked chicken, nutritional yeast and baby tomatoes. Stir gently.
* Cook 1 lb raw chicken to get 2 cups cooked chicken.
For a Vegan Version, replace chicken with the same amount of cooked broccoli or roasted eggplant cubes. You may cook those while cooking the rest of your ingredients to save some time.
