Recipe by: Rae


2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
4 TBSP pine nuts
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt
pinch pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 TBSP olive oil
8 ounces rotini pasta
1 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup shredded parmesan


1. For the pesto: Add the garlic, and pine nuts to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the basil and Parmesan and pulse until well chopped. Add the salt and pepper and olive oil and pulse until well combined.

2. Cook the pasta in boiling water as directed and reserve 1/2 cup of the water just before draining.

3. While pasta cooks, pat chicken dry and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.

5. Thinly slice chicken breasts.
