Cilantro-Pesto Penne with Chicken

A while ago, I posted about making some cilantro pesto and freezing it. A couple weeks ago, my mom came to visit for a night. I had some chicken in the fridge but I didn't know what to do with it. I saw the cilantro pesto in my freezer and pulled it out. I tossed it with some whole wheat penne (just thaw it on the counter top while you are making the pasta, then toss it with the warm pasta and it will heat up), and topped it with sliced grilled chicken and fresh basil. It was a perfect light meal, accompanied with a glass of wine. Thanks for visiting mom!
