Linguine with Chicken, Tomatoes and Spinach Pesto Recipe

A few weeks ago, I posted the recipe for spinach pesto. This pasta recipe is one of the meals I used the pesto with. This pasta recipe turned out great and it's so easy to make if you already have the pesto prepared. It would be a great weeknight meal! Enjoy!!

Linguine with Chicken, Tomatoes and Spinach Pesto (print recipe)

What you need:
8 ounces linguine
olive oil
1 large chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
3 heaping tablespoons spinach pesto
parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse and set aside.

Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, saute the chicken and garlic in some olive oil until chicken is cooked through. Add tomatoes, saute for another 2 minutes. Toss in the pasta and pesto and heat through. Top with parmesan and serve!
