Wow! Amazing! Everyone inhaled it, even the ones who don't like some of the things in it! Tasted like Olive Garden came to our house tonight! With a side of garlic bread...perfect! Thank you.
I loved this recipe. I actually used it as a cold pasta salad after preparing. Everyone loved it. I sautéed the chicken with some garlic and veggie pepper. Did not have asparagus on hand so I used a can of chopped artichokes, in water and drained them. Sautéed them at the end of cooking the chicken. Mixed everything all together and chilled over night.
This was a huge hit at our party yesterday. I would give it five stars but did not follow exactly.
This stuff is amazing. I wouldn't change a thing.
Very good, but a lot of steps. I've made many versions of this recipe, always sautéing my vegetables together. It prevents the zucchini from becoming mushy because I add my veggies depending on the time they need to be cooked. I substituted many things, including Italian sausage for the chicken. I skipped the asparagus and added more mushrooms. It may seem like a lot of veggies, but they shrink when you cook them - so add what you like. Very versatile recipe. I was hesitant to make a recipe submitted by a cleaning product... After all the worst part of cooking is the messy kitchen! But with my suggestion, cleanup is easier. I make the veggies and meat in one, large pan. Then add the cooked tortellini ( any pasta will do) and pesto. Oh ya, I make my pesto in large batches and freeze it in ice cube trays.
This was delicious, light, balanced, and colorful. A great way to use up the summer garden harvest. I also deglazed the chicken skillet with a little broth to add more flavor.
This recipe was fantastic! I was a little worried there wouldn't be enough pesto or tortellini but the ratio was perfect. This is a very healthy meal and well worth the hour it takes to make. Cheers
This recipe was awesome. My family loved the flavor. Did not make Pesto from scratch , used a good brand of Pesto in jar. (Didn't have the time.) Next time I will make the homemade. Also, next time I will try ground Italian sausage instead of chicken.
