When creating a meal plan, I often ask Pete, “What’s something you’d like this week?” Almost always the response is, “Chicken Pesto Pasta.” It’s his favorite dish! My mother-in-law gave me the recipe when we first met and it’s been on a rotating list of meals ever since.
Chicken Pesto Pasta
- Mini Farfalle Pasta (I’ve also used Penne in the past)
- Diced Tomatoes
- Diced Onion
- Diced Chicken (we use Perdue Shortcuts)
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Begin by boiling water for your pasta. Cook according to package directions.
While pasta is boiling, dice up some onion. Spray cooking spray in a pan and fry the onion and the diced Perdue shortcuts.
When cooked, add the can of diced tomatoes. Mix all ingredients together and then add a few tablespoons of prepared pesto. Mix.
Once your pasta is cooked, drain. Add to the pot with the other ingredients. Sprinkle some shredded mozzarella on top and cover with a lid to let melt.
