Pesto, Chicken, and Portabella Pasta


Spaghetti is a great, quick, and easy meal. I cannot count the number of times there has been no real dinner plan and we just throw a pot of water on the stove top to make some pasta. Easy solution.

This is a simple recipe as long as you follow the directions on your pasta packaging. From there, you just add and stir for the most part. I have an original, homemade pesto sauce, but I will update on that later. Tonight we were out of some of the ingredients so I just used some store-bought pesto (still yummy). Exclude the chicken from this dish for a vegetarian meal. This is such a delicious dinner no matter which ingredients you include. Tinkyada never fails to impress and the noodles taste so amazing with the chicken and mushrooms. The pesto adds great flavor, though I don’t prefer a ton. This was a great success.

This recipe gave me the idea to try pesto chicken in the future, and I hope to try it soon.


  • 1 package pasta/spaghetti (I use Tinkyada with great results every time!)
  • Water (depending to pasta cooking directions)
  • 1 package baby portabellas, sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp pesto sauce (approx)
  • Precooked chicken breast strips


  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, cook mushrooms (saute or boil).
  • Heat pesto for a few seconds, add to pasta, and stir until it is evenly distributed.
  • Add in chicken and mushrooms and continue mixing until everything is even and dispersed throughout noodles.
  • Serve immediately.
