Pesto Pasta with Chicken

The Menu:
Pesto Pasta with Chicken

The Original Recipe:
This was a quick supper night. I used my oven roasted tomatoes. This came together fast and was eaten even faster. Simple and delicious. Also kid friendly (especailly since there are 2 of us that doesn't like red sauce).

Pesto Pasta with Chicken

1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

crushed red pepper flakes to taste

1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and cut into strips

1/2 cup pesto sauce


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic until tender, then stir in chicken. Season with red pepper flakes. Cook until chicken is golden, and cooked through.

3. In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. Toss to coat evenly.
