Whole Wheat Pasta with Pesto and Grilled Chicken

On with 0 Comment
I always love pasta and chicken combination as it not only tastes great but is also a complete meal. I've used my favorite Parmesan cheese for this recipe as it blends very well with different pasta variants. You can either make fresh pesto at home or can use the canned version. The former version will give you the best results. If you're a fan of sea food, don't hesitate to add some grilled shrimps too. You can also combine two different types of pasta in this recipe. Vegetarians can replace grilled chicken with beans or broccoli. I generally prefer to serve pasta preparations in breakfast as it is easy-to-make and is loved by all the family members. So, let's see how to make this irresistible pasta recipe.
