Pesto in presto
Here is the perfect dinner-guest dinner.
This pesto chicken pasta dish is so easy but so good. A few simple steps and you’re sipping wine as friends arrive and immediately can’t help but wonder "what smells so good?" I’ll tell you what: jars of fancy ingredients other people made, but hey, how else are you supposed to cook and socialize?
The sun-dried tomatoes, pesto and feta make it seem fancy. Granted, these might not be everyday ingredients at your house (I definitely don’t keep jars of this stuff on hand), but really, grocery shopping for this meal is its most time-consuming aspect. I’m telling you: grill, boil, stir, voila.
Pesto Chicken Pasta
16 ounces fusilli (spiral) pasta
3-4 grilled chicken breast, cut into small strips
½ C. chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
½ C. basil pesto
½ C. feta
Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, mix chicken, tomatoes, pesto and feta in a large bowl. Add pasta, tossing to evenly coat noodles. Sprinkle a little extra feta on top and serve. This easily feeds four, maybe six.
