pesto pasta anyone?...

pasta with pesto is one of our favorites and very simple to make.  simple when it comes to cooking...that's me!  if it's more than 6 ingredients i start to stress : ).  anyhoo, no measurements for this meal...just the ingredients and some directions.
some fresh bottled pesto. we get ours at costco but i've also gotten pesto at trader joe's and i'm sure they will have some at your local grocery store.
boil a bag of pasta, we prefer bowtie.  grill some chicken with your favorite seasoning and slice cooked chicken.
cook some fresh mushrooms in olive oil or butter. and cut up some tomatoes.
Sweet Shot Day
toss, pesto, cooked mushrooms, sliced chicken, fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes together in a pasta bowl and there you have it.  a very yummy and quick pasta with pesto for a meal!

 

bon appetite!

Alely, this looks like a fantastic meal. Have you made homemade pesto yet? It's phenomenal and so easy -- I'll send you the recipe if you'd like. I also tend to make my pasta from scratch too. This Friday I'm having friends over for dinner and I may force them to help me make orecchiette.

I didn't know Costco had that pesto, now I'll have to go find it! I love homemade pesto pizza with just pesto, monzarella, and sun-dried tomatoes on homemade pizza dough. Your meal looks very yummy too!
I'm hoping to grow enough sweet basil in my garden to make some fresh pesto this summer.

Yum! This looks so good and easy! OK-only californians grill in the winter on the east coast. We just grilled chicken this weekend. LOL.
