Basil Pesto Pasta with Chicken, Pumpkin and Cherry Tomatoes

I like a good pasta, and this one is so easy you could make it for a bbq, dinner party, lunch or whimsical moment of hunger...

What you'll need:

1 tbsp oil
Chicken breast fillets, diced
1 1/2 cups of pumpkin, diced
1 packet of fresh filled pasta (ie: ravioli etc)
1 tub of basil pesto
8-10 cherry tomatoes halved
Salt or powdered stock

How to do what I did:

Saute the chicken and pumpkin in the oil until pumpkin is soft and chicken is cooked through.  Sprinkle with salt or small amount of powdered stock.
Boil the pasta for required time, and then drain and transfer to a serving bowl.
Add the chicken and pumpkin, basil pesto, and cherry tomatoes.
Serve :)

If you want to, add some shaved parmesan to the top of each serving, or you could add some sour cream to the recipe for a creamy basil pasta variation.

Enjoy! A. xo
