Chicken Romesco Pesto Pasta

Tonight my sister arrived home from varsity for the holidays, and its a really cold evening! so I decided to make a warm, hearty chicken pesto pasta…

Ingredients:
Chicken breasts
Bacon
Pesto (any type, I used Romesco, which is cashew nut pesto)
Mushrooms
Green and red peppers
Fresh cream
Pasta – any type
Herbs and parmesan for topping

Its pretty simple…dice the bacon and chicken, and cook them separately and add together when done. Then add the mushrooms and peppers, and let them all cook together. Add desired amounts of cream and pesto, then let the flavours all simmer and thicken. meanwhile, boil the pasta. Seve pasta with chicken mix dished on top 🙂

That’s it…quick and simple!! And it actually turned out really good!! It’s a very rich meal, so we all had small helpings, but still delicious! My family approved and were proud, even though they have to be 😉 So for my first meal, I am happy! Started with something fairly easy…lets see what tomorrow brings…I’m thinking Mexican…
