Ingredients

  • 1 8.5 oz package Barilla Ready Pasta
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half

  • 1/2 cup pearl-sized mozzarella cheese
  • 1 chicken breast pre-cooked diced or shredded
  • 2 tbsp Barilla Pesto Sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts (optional)

Instructions

  • Slice the tomatoes in half and place them in a large bowl. 
  • Next measure out about a cup of spinach. Run your knife thru it so it's cut into small bite sized pieces - place into the bowl. 
  • Add the mozzarella cheese to the bowl - if you cannot find pearl-sized, just dice the cheese into small bite-sized pieces
  • Dice or shred the pre-cooked chicken breast. Add to the bowl
  • Next in a small bowl, add two tablespoons of Barilla Pesto Sauce and one tablespoon of olive oil. Mix it together well. 
  • Microwave the pasta and add it to the bowl. Mix with the pesto sauce, serve and enjoy!
  • Pine nuts are optional - if using toss a handful on top of the pasta prior to serving.
