Quick pasta dishes are perfect to have up your sleeve on a busy weeknight. You can throw in just about anything you have in your fridge and you can’t get much more kid-friendly than finger sized noodles.
This easy green chicken pasta recipe is a variation of our all-time favorite homemade pizza recipe – Chicken and Feta Pizza with Pesto.
Since my kids all enjoyed the pizza form of these ingredients, it was a great way to expand their horizons and get them to eat this meal without complaining.
- Pasta – We used bow tie but any pasta you have on hand will do. I love whole wheat pasta but in this dish the wheat flavor overpowers the other ingredients so I’d stick with something basic.
- Pesto – You can make it. We like things easy around here so we bought it. You can get some great quality pesto at most health food stores for a fraction of what it would cost to make it yourself . . . unless you have a garden, which I don’t.)
- Cooked chicken
- Pine nuts
- Feta cheese
