Quick Dinner: Chicken Pesto Pasta with Vegetables

26 Feb

Being a college student, there’s not always a lot of time to make dinner. Some nights I only have 30 minutes to cook and eat, so I’ve come up with a handful of dinners that are fast, easy and delicious. Here’s one of my favorite quick-fix meals that I use time and time again.

Chicken Pesto Pasta with Vegetables Ingredients: (Serves 4)
