CHICKEN AND PESTO BOWTIE PASTA

One of my family's favorite meals is "Hulk Pasta" which is Chicken and Pesto Bowtie Pasta.  The Littles named it Hulk Pasta because of its green color.  I will let them call it anything they want as long as they eat it!  It is an amazing family friendly recipe that you could also use for a nice dinner party.
 
 
 
What You Need:
  •   3 chicken breasts
  •   1 box bowtie pasta
  •   1/4 cup pinenuts
  •   1 cup pesto sauce
  •   1/4 cup grated parmasan cheese
  •   olive oil
  •   salt
 
What You Do:
  • Cut chicken breasts into cubes. 
  • Toast pinenuts in the sautee pan until lighly brown, salt and remove from pan.  Set aside.
  • Boil the bowtie pasta in water until al dente.
  • While pasta is boiling, drizzle olive oil into a sautee pan and begin to brown the chicken.
  • Once chicken and pasta are cooked, drain pasta and add to chicken in the sautee pan.
  • Add in pesto sauce, toasted pinenuts and parmasan cheese.
  • Mix thorougly and enjoy!
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is one recipe you will want to try soon!  You can make your own pesto (which I will be showing you next week) or you can buy some quality pesto in the store.  Either way is amazing!
