Pesto Chicken Penne

Pesto Chicken Pennewith Tomatoes and Shaved Parmesan

We never tire of pesto pasta—there’s something about perfectly al dente noodles tossed in a blend of fresh basil, olive oil, and Parmesan that we just can’t turn down. In this Encore Recipe, hearty whole-wheat penne is coated in a creamy white wine–pesto sauce, a perfect match for juicy chicken, grape tomatoes, and spinach.
