I made this last night and it was good. I cook for my sister and myself and we both liked it (I must say that I surf the internet for recipes because she is very picky about what she'll eat and has a very limited palate, so I am constantly looking to add variety while cooking something she will like and eat). I did alter the recipe some because it just didn't seem right. Number 1 was the amount of bow-tie pasta--I cut it in half. I flattened the chicken breasts and cooked them in the olive oil and garlic then removed from pan. Then added about 4oz. each of sliced mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and sliced red pepper to the pan and sauteed. Then I chopped the chicken into bite size pieces and combined all ingredients in a bowl with the pesto (from Costco, 1/2 cup plus 2 tbls). Garnished with fresh basil leaves, pine nuts, and parmasean cheese. Added a side dish of steamed broccoli. It was really delicious. I really get my inspiration from the comments to the recipes on this site. With that in mind, I decided to write this, my first comment. Thank you to all of you fine cooks who take the time to write comments. I'm hooked.
