Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad

Last night Don created Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad.

Here's a recipe that I've slightly adapted to show how we created it:

3 lb. chicken, cooked, boned and cut into bite-size pieces
12 oz. pasta
1/4 c. dried basil
1/2 c. olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
Pine nuts and/or pistachio nuts

Mix basil, olive oil, cheese, nuts and garlic that has been put through garlic press in blender; reserve 1/4 cup cheese. Cook pasta. Combine with chicken and pesto sauce; toss with remaining cheese. Serve hot! Serve with side salad! Consume!

It certainly hit the spot on a very warm and balmy night. It was probably the warmest day of the year [24C].

Good show!
