Quick Weeknight Dinner: Rotini Pasta with Pesto & Chicken

I love an easy weeknight dinner. My work had some pesto from Dean and Deluca that they were going to throw away, so I decided to snatch it to make pasta. (see pesto photo on the right)


1/2 box of gluten free rotini - Let water,1 1/2 cup of broth, dash of salt and olive oil to boil and add rotini for approximately 9 minutes

4 thin sliced chicken tenderloins chopped length-wise

Use good olive oil and cook your chicken in 2 tbs of the sun-dried tomato pesto (here is a recipe in case you don't have a Dean and Deluca store nearby) and one 1 tbs of regular pesto.

Add salt and pepper to taste

Once the pasta is done, add it into the chicken mixture. Add 4 tbs of the pesto (mix and match) and mix. Top it off with some smoked mozzarella or shredded mozzarella.
