Chicken Florentine Pesto Pasta 


Florentine is a fancy name for foods served with spinach. Take your pesto pasta a notch by adding spinach and grilled chicken as aside, you’ll be easily transported to an Italian countryside cafe!



1/2 cup chopped onion

2 1/2 tablespoons pesto

2 tablespoons olive oil or chilli oil

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons fresh cream

1 cup spinach leaves

250g Pasta Joy linguine pasta

Salt to taste

Ground black pepper to taste



Cook pasta in a large pot of salted, boiling water until done, roughly 8 minutes. Pasta must be al dente. Drain. 


Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Add pesto, onion, spinach and salt and pepper. Cook about five minutes, or until onions are soft. Swirl in cream and bring to a slight boil.


Add pasta into the pot and swirl around in pesto sauce until coated. Adjust seasoning and stir in grated cheese. Serve alongside grilled chicken breasts.
