    If you love pesto, you'll love this!

    The first time I made this, the family couldn't get enough of it! I usually double the recipe, have used half and half instead of the milk and added even more pesto. The changes I've made are to bake the seasoned chicken breasts in the oven and have baked the whole pasta-chicken-pesto mixture in the oven after adding mozzarella cheese chunks to it and shredded mozzarella on top. I sometimes add steamed broccoli and/or sautéed mushrooms. Rigatoni works well in this recipe as well.

    Easy & fast meal, serve with Salad

    Made recipe as is, but added two cups of frozen peas to the last six minutes of Penne pasta cooking time-- wanted some veggies & color. I don't think this recipe needs additional pesto as others have recommended. Next time I will add thinly sliced cooked zucchini to the recipe. Served it for lunch with a simple green salad. My family thought the pasta dish was good, but they did not rave about it. This is a quick & easy recipe!

    Quick and delicious

    I made this for my Husband and Son last night and they LOVED it! My older Son generally doesn't like when I try something new, but last night he said "you can make this again"! I did add a small jar of sliced mushrooms to this and it made it even better I think. The recipe is so simple to do and we all thought it was great.
