Savvy Savin' Suppers --- Girls' Night Pasta

Girls Night Pasta


16 ounces, weight Rotini Pasta, Cooked

1 whole Roasted Chicken, Picked

1 cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes-diced

½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese

2 ounces, weight Pine Nuts, Toasted

1 cup Pesto Sauce (or To Taste)

1 cup Reserved Pasta Water (add To Taste)

2 dashes Salt And Pepper, to taste
Preparation Instructions
1. Start off by boiling some salted pasta water, and cook the pasta until almost al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water, then drain the pasta and set it aside (the pasta will finish cooking when you stir in the other ingredients).

2. Pick the chicken, dice the sundried tomatoes, and grate the Parmesan.

3. Lightly toast the pine nuts in a skillet, watching carefully so that they don’t burn.

4. Over low heat, stir the pesto, tomatoes, chicken, and pine nuts into the pasta until incorporated and the pasta is al dente. If the pasta looks dry, add in a splash of pasta water. Keep adding pasta water until the consistency is to your taste. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Serve with Parmesan sprinkled on top.
