Chicken Pesto Tortillini Salad

Chicken Pesto Salad

I had made a bunch of pesto and froze it.

I took out one, one cup container.

I wanted to clean out my freezer and this was on the list to use with  a one pound package of boneless chicken and a two pound package or cheese tortillini.

Boil the tortellini according to the package directions.

I always undercook mine because I like them chewy.

Rinse and drain

Place into a large bowl and add half the pesto  then toss.

Combine the chicken, one large red pepper and one large red onion with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper.

Grill till everything is cooked well.

Slice everything into 1/2 inch pieces and place over the tortillini.

Add the rest of the pesto and toss

Add chopped parsley for garnish and a heavy sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

This can be served hot or cold.
