Directions

  1. add all the pesto ingredients to a food processor, except the olive oil. Pulse and blend well. Slowly drizzle in the oil. You can decide how much oil you want in your pesto. You can also add water or chicken broth if you want it a bit saucy.
  2. Cook pasta in boiling water. While the pasta cooks: Saute the chicken in the pan with 1 TBS of olive oil until browned and done, about 5-8 minutes depending on size of pieces. Remove chicken from the pan.
  3. Cut up all the veggies and add then to the pan. Saute until crisp tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Drain pasta.
  5. In a large pot or bowl, combine the pasta, chicken, sauteed veggies and pesto. Stil together until combined well. Add cut up tomato, stir to combine, plate and serve.
