Another summer favorite around our house is pesto. Our basil plants seem to flourish every year and provide the source for an abundance of it. And on those hot summer evenings it makes for a simple yet tasty meal that won't heat up your kitchen too much.
Once you have your pesto (Foster's pesto recipe) the rest is pretty simple. I don't give any exact measurements here because there aren't any. It's all seasoned to taste.
Cook tricolor rotini according to package directions
After you have cooked and drained the rotini, add pesto and mix so the pesto covers all of the pasta.
Sprinkle the seasoning above on your chicken breast. Pour a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet. Heat on stove and add your chicken.
Cook chicken long enough to get a nice sear. Remove from heat and slice on cutting board. Add chicken back to skillet until finished cooking.
Top your pasta and pesto sauce with a few slices of seasoned chicken.
