Chicken Pesto Pasta

Chicken Pesto Pasta can be served hot or cold and is made with homemade basil pesto, chicken, protein pasta, and topped with shaved Parmesan.

This Chicken Pesto Pasta is one of my Summer/Early Fall, go-to recipes. We usually have Homemade Basil pesto (or other pesto varieties) on hand made with herbs from our kitchen garden.




– 14.5 ounce (411 grams) (1 box) protein pasta, cooked, we use Barilla brand Protein+ Penne Pasta, *you can substitute regular pasta – Kosher salt for cooking pasta – 1/2 cup basil pesto, amount to taste

Cook the pasta in salted water according to the instructions and strain. You can add extra virgin olive oil and stir to combine so that the pasta doesn't stick together.
