Pesto Chicken Pasta
4 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
6 cups water
1 1/4 pounds chicken pieces (cooked)
1/4 cup commercial pesto, divided
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shaved fresh Parmesan cheese
Basil sprigs (optional)
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
While pasta cooks, Toss cooked chicken with 2 tablespoons pesto and tomatoes. Stir in pasta and 2 tablespoons pesto. Top with cheese. Garnish with basil, if desired.
Homemade Pesto (it's easy!!!)
2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts or walnuts
3 medium sized garlic cloves, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Combine the basil in with the pine nuts, pulse a few times in a food processor. (If you are using walnuts instead of pine nuts and they are not already chopped, pulse them a few times first, before adding the basil.) Add the garlic, pulse a few times more.
Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add the grated cheese and pulse again until blended. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
