Pasta?....Si Signorita ....

Miss E loves anything to do with pasta, pizza or Italian cuisine... She is more 'Ang Moh' than Mr H Jr who is more 'Mamak'. For her...Pasta- anytime be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, we used to tease her by telling her ...that the only part that is Italian ... is her 'tooshie'...
This is Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta....

  • 350g dried Pasta or spaghetti
  • 300ml light cream
  • thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked chicken - shred
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • parmesan cheese
Cooked the pasta as per packet instruction. Drain the pasta and reserve 1/4 cup of the water. Heat up the pot, add pasta, cream, tomatoes, pesto chicken and green onions. Heat through. Salt and pepper.
Sprinkle with remaining green onion and parmesan cheese.
Homemade Pesto:
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • about a handful of almond (suppose to use pine nuts but Della dont quite like the taste of pine nuts)
  • parmesan cheese
  • olive oil
  • salt
mix basil, parmesan and nuts in the food processor, and pour in olive oil and continue to process until a smooth paste.
You can freeze any left over pesto or mix it with cooked chicken (shredded), and ideal for sandwiches for the family....
