One-Pot Chicken Pesto Pasta
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Made this tonight. Loved it! I added sautéed onions and garlic and then at the end I added 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/4 c Parmesan cheese. I did not cook the broccoli as long as suggested so it would remain firm. Delicious!!

Where is the pesto in this recipe?
It was OK - nothing special. I agree with other reviewers that it needed something else. Even though I added some garlic powder, it still needs more flavor. Probably won't make it again.
This was a very easy and delicious recipe. I did not have broccoli or peas, so I used asparagus and zucchini. My husband said that he would eat it again.
This dish was one of my personal favorites. I love pesto and this was a simple way to use it. It was a light and filling dish that had a quick prep time. Great for weeknights or a nice weekend meal!
I used 1/2 lb shrimp and broth made from cooking the shrimp shells, 5 oz mini bowtie pasta, 1/2 sweet red pepper, juice from 1 lemon, 1/3 c. homemade pesto, plus salt and pepper w parmesan on top. No broccoli. I believe 1/2 cup of peas would be sufficient for 3 servings
Great meal!! Easy to make & delicious!
I was pleasantly surprised at this dish. It truly was so easy, and I feel like the lemon juice gave the pesto an extra kick. You really could taste it. This would be a fun one to change up the pesto variety with. I'm also usually quite skeptical about anything "one pot", as I find the liquid or cook time is inevitably off. Not in this case though! It really was exactly what I was looking for - a quick, tasty supper that everyone liked.
The basil pesto made this dish smell wonderful, but the taste wasn't one we liked. We ate it, but won't be making it again. I think the sauce needs something besides just pesto -- something to mix with it.
