Cook pasta in a large pot of salted, boiling water until done, roughly 8 minutes. Pasta must be al dente. Drain.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium low heat. Add pesto, onion, spinach and salt and pepper. Cook about five minutes, or until onions are soft. Swirl in cream and bring to a slight boil.
Add pasta into the pot and swirl around in pesto sauce until coated. Adjust seasoning and stir in grated cheese. Serve alongside grilled chicken breasts
