I have typed out the recipe.. also blogged on this recipe :) This is a great one

Sauce:
2 tbsp. basil pesto (I used about 3 hefty tbsp.)
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. liquid honey 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

2 cups uncooked penne noodles
4 slices bacon, chopped
3 cups sliced mushrooms (I did not use this amount)
1 cup chopped onions
3 big handfuls baby spinach leaves
12 cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half (I used a roma tomato) cheaper
3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan or Romano cheese, or 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (I used both parm and feta)

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 thru. Add cooked penne noodles and mix well. Add reserved sauce and mix again. Remove from skillet from heat. Sprinkle pasta with Parm or feta and freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately.
