Pesto “Pasta”

Well I just couldn’t make you wait any longer for a recipe with that yummy pesto I made earlier in the week. This is one of those recipes that is so simple that you will probably hear yourself saying “why didn’t I think of that”. If you miss pasta this recipe is the natural replacement for the urge. Let me introduce you to the all natural pasta replacement aka the green bean. I prefer to use french green beans because they are smaller. Now you can have your pesto pasta and not feel guilty.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons Pesto
  • 2 large Chicken Breasts
  • French Green Beans
  1. Place green beans in a small pot with enough water to steam the beans. Cook covered on high.
  2. At the same time in a sauté pan drizzled with 1 teaspoon of olive oil add cubed chicken and 1 tablespoon of pesto. Cook on a medium-high heat.
  3. Cook chicken and steamed beans at the same time. When the chicken is cooked through the beans will also be done to a “aldente” state.
  4. Drain off any liquid from the chicken and also drain the beans in a colander.
  5. Add the beans to the sauté pan with the remaining 1 tablespoon of pesto.
  6. Quickly mix the chicken, pesto, and beans together over medium heat so that the chicken and beans don’t get over cooked.
  7. Serve with fresh grated parmesan. Enjoy!
