• Creamy Pesto Pasta with Chicken or Shrimp

    Date: 2012.01.19 | Category: recipes | Tags: ,,,,

    I love pesto.  I do not love the price of pesto at the grocery store, nor do I grow my own basil to make pesto at home.  Costco, however, sells a huge jar of pesto at a great price.  Yum!  I came up with this recipe and it is now a regular family staple.  Somehow it has gained mythic status with Chris’ kid’s at school- they all rave about it too.  I’m not really sure how that happened, but I’ll take whatever glory I can get, even if it is from a bunch of middle school students!  Perhaps even more so because aren’t kids that age supposed to be picky eaters?

    Creamy Pesto Pasta

    1 box whole grain rotini or penne
    8 oz pesto
    8 oz alfredo sauce
    1 cup cooked and cubed chicken or 2 cups cooked and prepared shrimp
    Parmesan cheese to taste

    Boil pasta.   Add other ingredients.  Eat!

    yum!
