I had a bit of a challenging day earlier this week. To sum it up quickly…
Got ready for work. Bella got sick. All over the house. Plopped her in the bath. Cleaned it all up…rug, floor, clothes…you get my drift.
Finally got out of the house and hopped in my mom-in-law’s car to go to work. Car dies on the road. Co-worker picks me up.
Proceeded to have a super craptastic day at the office. Crappy days in sales impact your paycheck. No bueno.
The highlight of my day? Dinner. Not just because it tasted good, but because I prepped it the night before. Ahhhhh.
Chicken Pasta Pesto Bake
12 ounces penne, cooked al dente
2 large chicken breasts, cooked, cut into chunks
2/3 cup pesto (homemade or store bought)
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes.
***I used leftover chicken (seasoned and grilled). It can be cooked however you like – just make sure it’s seasoned for added flavor!
