Today is already shaping up to be one of those days… I figured it’s time to take a little break, and update my blog. Preferably with something simple… a post that is largely completed. Luckily, this Penne with Zucchini, Pesto, and Chicken fit the bill. I hope you all enjoy this one as much as Sean and I did, especially on this rainy, dreary day (but really I hope that the weather is better wherever you are!).
Adapted ever so slightly from Kalyn’s Kitchen.
1 box short cut pasta
salt, for seasoning pasta water
2-3 zucchinis, cut into half moon shapes (2 if medium, 3 if small)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper, for seasoning zucchini
basil pesto, 2/3 cup or to taste
1/2 cup pasta cooking water
2 small chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
Put a pot of salted water on the stove to boil. While waiting for it to come up to a boil, heat 1 tbs of olive oil in a big pan, add the garlic, and satuee for approximately a minute. Once the garlic is fragrant, add the zucchini and season with salt and pepper.
