This is really quick and yummy Pesto recipe. I add pasta, chicken and sun-dried tomatoes.

Preparation

Put the basil, garlic, pine nuts, and Parmesan into a food processor and blend until smooth. Slowly add the oil while the motor is running. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I cook up some chicken and pasta and mix the pasta with the pesto and then top with the chicken and some sun-dried tomatoes.
