Pesto has to be one of my favorite flavors to add to chicken or pasta. It can drastically improve and enhance any bland dish. Add a hint of pesto, and Bam! the dish goes from boring to brilliant in less than a minute.
This pasta dish was easy to make and packed with delicious flavor! I added some chopped walnuts in with the chicken to include a hint of nuttiness. I was lazy buying the pesto, rather than actually making it, but it still tasted delicious.
Lovera’s pesto is one of my absolute favorites if I am not making it myself.
Sprinkled a generous amount of Parmesan over the warm pasta.
And no pasta dish is complete without freshly baked bread and oil. Wish I could give up this habit but I loveeee bread too much! Sometimes you just have to live it up like that 🙂
4 Tbsp Pesto
1/4 C Chopped Walnuts
S & P
Begin boiling water for the pasta.
Sautee garlic then add chicken.
Once chicken is almost cooked, add in the walnuts and pesto.
Mix cooked pasta, chicken, and stir in a hint more of the pesto.
Squeeze in lemon for a perfect amount of zest.
