Chicken pesto pasta

Tonight I made chicken and pesto pasta for dinner. Funnily my first time using chicken with pasta! I don’t know why I haven’t cooked this before, it’s great as a quick and easy meal for two or make extra for lunch at work. Yummy!

Ingredients
200g pasta or spaghetti
200g chicken, chopped
100g of red pesto
Black pepper to taste
80g grated mozzarella cheese

Method

Cook the pasta according to packet directions, usually 10 minutes in a saucepan of boiling water. Drain well and set aside.

Pan fry the chicken in oil on a medium heat until it’s cooked right through.

Add pesto and black pepper to chicken and stir together.
