My husband is a wonderful cook. We share the kitchen and we each have our specialties. He often does the cooking for our dinner parties.

Cook Time (Including the Homemade Pesto)

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves 8 or more people depending upon appetite.

Ingredients: Pasta (Pesto Recipe Below)

  • 1 package penne pasta, cooked al dente
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 8 mini peppers, slivered
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced in half then cut into pieces...half moon shaped
  • 4 small raw chicken fillets, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • Parmesan Reggiano cheese, to taste
  • Garlic powder or fresh minced, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Hot pepper flakes (optional), to taste
  • 3 tablespoons prepared pesto, or to taste

Instructions: Pasta

  1. Cook your pasta according to package directions keeping it al dente, or slightly undercooked as it will finish cooking in the pan with the rest of the ingredients. Al dente means "to the tooth," which means it is still a bit firm. Drain the pasta. saving some of the pasta water for later use, if needed.
  2. Slice your vegetables according to directions.
  3. Wash and pat dry your chicken fillets and cut into cubes.
  4. Start by adding the extra virgin olive oil into the pan, and when heated, add your sliced onions.
  5. After 1-2 minutes of stirring, add the sliced peppers, followed by the zucchini and mushrooms.
  6. Season to taste and cook until the vegetables have wilted and softened but still retain some of their bright colors.
  7. Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.
  8. Add the diced chicken into the same pan, adding a bit more of the oil if needed and sauté until just done. Season at this stage also.
  9. Add the vegetables back into the pan with the chicken and stir.
  10. Add the cooked pasta and some of the Parmesan cheese. Stir and taste. Adjust seasonings. If the pasta dish needs more moisture, add some reserved pasta water into the pan a little at a time and combine with all of the ingredients.
  11. Add a few dollops of the fresh pesto. I probably used about three tablespoons or so. Use according to your preference.
  12. When this is nicely mixed and to your liking, serve on heated plates and garnish with a little extra Parmesan Reggiano cheese over the top, if desired. Enjoy!

Cilantro Parsley Pesto

I made the pesto and the pasta dish at the same time, but this pesto recipe could easily be made up ahead of time. Pesto can be created from many different ingredients. Most often basil is used along with EVOO, garlic, Parmesan Reggiano cheese, pine nuts or other nuts and seasonings.

Ingredients

  • 2 large bunches of cilantro
  • 1 large bunch of parsley
  • 3 cloves peeled garlic
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan Reggiano cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes for some extra spiciness and flavor

Instructions

  1. Fill a Cuisinart mixing bowl with all of the ingredients listed above. (At first, all the fresh herbs did not fit into the bowl, so I just processed it a bit and kept adding more, as can be seen in the photos below.
  2. Give it all a whirl in the food processor, and freshly made pesto was the result.

If you do not have the time or inclination to make your homemade pesto, purchase some ready-made pesto at the grocery store. The flavor will be different but equally enjoyable.

Storage Hint: Giada de Laurentiis (one of the celebrity chefs on television) puts her pesto in ice cube trays. When frozen, she transfers them into freezer bags. She then pulls out as many cubes she thinks she will need for recipes. I have started doing that, and it works beautifully.

Another Easy Pesto Recipe

What's for Supper Tonight?

Deciding what to eat each day is a question and concern for most of us. A bit of forethought must go into the planning, especially if thawing things from one's freezer and wishing to utilize that ingredient later in the day.

Even if stopping by a grocery store on the way home to pick up last-minute items, a plan for using them is advisable. Otherwise, if tired and hungry after a day's work, one is more likely to be tempted to grab a quick meal at the drive-through fast-food establishment or go out to eat.

As we all know this is probably not the greatest of options for two reasons. Less nutritious and higher calorie food is often served at the fast-food emporiums with a few exceptions. And frequent dining out at restaurants takes a toll on our monthly budgets.

This recipe is an easy to prepare dinner option that does not take long to prepare and is delicious, nutritious, and easy on the budget. This chicken pasta entrée with loads of fresh vegetables paired with a leafy green salad will be sure to please your family members and/or friends that may be stopping by to join you for your nightly meal.

Note: This can easily be made into a vegetarian dish by simply omitting the chicken.

        Hi thumbi7,

        Nice that you now know how to make your own pesto. It is so easy to make different versions of pasta dishes depending what one has on hand or what a family's food preferences might happen to be. Glad you liked reading this and thanks for the share.

        I also prepare a slightly different version for my children. Chicken is not cut in cubes in my recipe. I boil chicken breasts and scramble into thin pieces.

        I didn't know how to prepare pesto

        Thanks for this recipe

        I've been reading food articles for a while now as I respond to comments and I'm getting pretty hungry. This looks especially good.

        You know, it might be fun for hubbers to plan some potluck get togethers in various regions of the country so we can meet the people behind the photos/names. Everyone could make up a couple of their recipes and bring it to the potluck! Hubbers could attend the potluck in their region, or all of them if so inclined.

        Going to share this delicious looking recipe with followers. We are going to get down to 17 F. tonight with 25 mph winds. I've been dreading tonight for several days now. Hope you will be in a nice warm place!

        Hello lurii,

        I have never used ketchup in pasta sauces but I do use tomatoes and tomato sauces...so it is probably a bit similar. Ketchup is a bit sweeter however. Glad you liked the sound of this recipe even with no ketchup. :)

        Hi Always Optimist,

        This is really a pretty simple dish to prepare especially if one has the pesto already made or purchased. I'll bet that your cousin would be happy to give you a few cooking lessons if you are interested in learning how to cook. I guess that I was lucky. I learned much of what I know by watching and then helping my mother in the kitchen. Thanks for your 5 star rating and votes + comment.

        Hi moonlake,

        We really like this recipe and obviously it can be easily altered to suit one's taste or depending upon which vegetables you might have on hand to substitute which would be an easy thing to do. I just planted some yellow crook neck squash in the garden so if it is a successful crop I would switch it in place of the zucchini in this recipe. I am also growing an assortment of different kinds of peppers this year. Thanks for the pin!

        Hi RTalloni,

        Am sure you can substitute something different for the cheese. Not quite sure what would be similar to Parmesan Regianno in taste and texture that does not come from cows...but a cheese monger should be able to advise you. Of course you could always use a different type of dressing in place of the pesto. Good luck. Let me know what you came up with if you decide to make this recipe. Am sure others would be interested as well. Thanks!

        Hi alocsin,

        The pesto still has a bit of a crunch because of the other nuts utilized, but a few extra pine nuts would be a nice addition to this Penne pasta meal. Certainly couldn't hurt! Traditional pesto has pine nuts combined into it. Thanks for your comment and votes.

        Hi vespawoolf,

        Your idea of using whole wheat pasta would make this dish even more wholesome. We often use it and I like the flavor. Having the homemade pesto frozen and ready to use in different dishes does make it convenient. The cilantro gave it a different but delicious flavor twist. Thanks for your comment.

        Pasta meals using fresh ingredients such as this recipe are really easy to assemble and are often palette pleasers. Glad that you liked the pesto recipe. We were together when I bought that large bag of cilantro. Remember? :) After using a bunch of it fresh, I had to do something with the rest of it before much of it would have ended up going on the compost pile. We liked my use of it in this pesto. Thanks for your comment.

        It is delicious...perhaps even better than it looks! Are you ready to try your hand at cooking this? :) Appreciate your comment.

        Hi Mary,

        Carbo loading approaching midnight is probably not the best thing unless you are running a marathon at 3 o'clock in the morning. Haha! Glad that you liked the sound of this recipe. Thanks for your comment, vote and the share.

        Well, if it tastes half as good as it looks then this is delicious.

        Hi Angela,

        So kind of you to be sharing this recipe with your friends and followers. As to authoring a cookbook, I never gave it much thought. Will keep publishing recipes here and if the feedback is as good as yours, I might consider it in the future. In the interim...keep reading! Thanks!

        I know better than to read your recipes at night! It's 11:15, and I want to cook up some pasta! This looks so good, I could eat a big serving right now. I do love pasta in any shape or form. Great Hub. I voted it up, and will share!
