 Hey ladies!
Sorry I'm a bit late but I haven't felt good all day.  This migraine is making me nauseus :/ Hope you are all having a great day!

What are you serving up today?

Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne 

This chicken was DIVINE!!!! It was so so good I really could have made myself sick if we would have had more left because I would have kept on chowing down!! 

The pasta, it was ok. It lacked flavor. But I find whole wheat pasta always tastes more cardboardy. And instead of half and half, I used skim milk! So yeah that was probably part of the problem, cutting calories never gives the same great flavor. But I will add pesto to the sauce next time.

1/2 bottle of lawrys Herb and Garlic Marinade
2 large spoonfuls of Pesto 
2 boneless chicken breasts. 

Cut chicken into one inch strips. Using same knife make slits into chicken. Pour lawrys marinade and pesto over chicken. Marinate over night (I did mine Sunday morning and cooked mine Monday evening so it marinated a while!!)

Sauce:
8 ounces of your choice of pasta (I used whole wheat penne) 
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
2 spoonfuls of pesto
1/2 cup of chicken broth
8 ounces of tomato sauce 
1 cup of half and half

Boil water and start on noodles.

Pour entire batch of chicken, marinade and all, into skillet and cook chicken fully (the marinade will evaporate/cook down)

Heat olive oil, cook garlic. Add pesto. Simmer in chicken broth until half has cooked down. Add tomato sauce. Then add milk. Simmer for 5 minutes. Toss pasta in. Add flour if it needs to be thickened. Place chicken on top.

 Thanks and me too!  Oh and add heartburn to the mix, ugh!
I hope it's good.  I recently fell in love with pesto but I'm a bit worried about the tomato sauce because I don't like a strong tomato flavor.
