I’m going to tell you a little secret about myself, ok? Here it goes… but first promise me you won’t laugh.
I didn’t think I could really cook until I was in my late 20′s. To make a long story short, when I was in my early 20′s I tried to make cookies from scratch and I mixed up a tablespoon of salt when it should have been a teaspoon. Yes, because I messed up a batch of cookies somehow I believed I wasn’t a good cook.
There it is. I’m a food blogger who at one point in her life didn’t believe she could cook. I’m so glad that I got over that belief. Isn’t it crazy how one event in our life can bring us to believe something so crazy about ourselves?
Now that we have that out of the way let’s talk about this Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta that I made last night for dinner. I really had no idea how it would turn out since I have only had pesto 1 other time in my whole life. I guess you could call me a Pesto Newbie.
I wanted to keep it easy this time since it was my first official Pesto Chicken recipe so of course I turned to Pinterest to find a recipe to try. I ended up choosing a recipe that I found over at Domestically Speaking for her Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta. It just so happened that I had everything that I needed to try it out.
I loved it but my Official Taste Tester (my hubby Joe) was sleeping at dinner time so he could get up for work (graveyard shift) so I ate all by myself. I couldn’t hardly wait to feed it to him this morning so I knew if it passed the test and was good enough to put on the blog. I was very happy when he gave it the good ol thumbs up!
Here’s the Pesto pre-made pesto that I bought from the store. I decided on this brand because it is a peanut/tree nut free pesto and that’s kind of hard to find. Our daughter has a really severe allergy so we have to be careful! So I guess you could say that this Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta is peanut/tree nut free! Pass it on!
