Pasta with Pea Pesto

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups peas, fresh or frozen
  1. ½ cup grated Parmesan
  1. ½ cup pine nuts
  1. 2 medium cloves garlic
  1. ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  1. 2 tablespoons water
  1. ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. 8 ounces whole-wheat penne or fusilli

Directions

1. For the pesto, blanch the peas in boiling water for 30 seconds, then shock them in cold water. Combine the peas and remaining ingredients in a food processor. Blend to form a thick sauce.

2. Season the chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken on each side until cooked through, 5-6 minutes per side. Cool slightly, and cut into 1-inch cubes.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Toss with pesto and chicken and serve.
