It was delicious!
Here is the recipe:
2 whole skinless chicken breasts roasted and shredded
2 ribs of celery-diced
1 box cooked penne pasta
one can of olives or fresh kalamata olives
1 bunch fresh basil- chopped
6-10 cherry tomatoes halved
1 can drained Garbanzo beans or White beans
2 cups of packed fresh spinach
salt and pepper
-1 cup of fresh pesto
(or Besto Pesto-this is a local pesto available at the farmer's market)
-juice and zest of one lemon
- 1/4 cup sour cream
-1/4 cup mayo
How To Make:
Combine sauce ingredients and set aside. Drizzle cooked pasta with a little olive oil,
add sauce, chicken and rest of ingredients, mix well. The hot pasta thins the sauce.
If the sauce is too thick you can thin it with a bit of pasta water.
Serve warm or cold.
Or make it Vegetarian to suit your taste.
Serving size: a big honkin bowl.
