Hello friends! I wanted to share another quick, simple weekday meal with you. This is a family favorite and also a favorite of mine to make when I am delivering a meal to another family! It comes together quickly and really only requires 6 ingredients.
If you are a more adventuresome cook, you can whip up your own pesto, it isn’t really that hard, or if you are pressed for time or maybe lazy like me, you can just buy the store-bought pesto too! I don’t really measure anything out in this dish so all the measurements that I give you are an approximation of what I use, just experiment with it!
Here are your ingredients:
Olive Oil (about 2 Tb)
Garlic (2-3 cloves diced)
Chicken Breasts (for our family of 4, I use 2 large breasts)
Pesto (7 ounce container or home-made)
Farfalle (bow tie) Pasta
Cut Chicken into small pieces, sauté chicken, garlic and olive oil in a medium pan.
While chicken is cooking, prepare pasta according to directions on box.
Once pasta and chicken are cooked, combine pasta, chicken and about 1/2 –3/4 of the container of the pesto in a large bowl, (you can add as much pesto as you want- it as all about how much taste you want) adding about a cup of mozzarella cheese.
Once it is all combined, sprinkle with more mozzarella to finish!
Add a side salad and some garlic bread, YUMMY!!! ENJOY!!!
