This is nothing mind blowing. I don't even think I need to post an actual recipe for this one. :) I simply grilled the chicken, cooked the pasta, sauteed the mushrooms, tossed the pesto with pasta - mixed it all together, topped it with feta and voila! There you have it.
But just in case you'd like to know how to make the pesto I used - here it is! It was the basil, mint & garlic scape recipe I had made and froze half of it to use at a later date (aka: now). It was a perfect to have the pesto on hand to throw together this quick and easy meal!
Basil, Mint & Garlic Scape Pesto
1/2 c. basil
1/2 c. mint (I used spearmint, peppermint, & citrus mint)
1 c. garlic scapes
2 TBS. pine nuts
1 tsp. salt (or more to taste)
1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
Blend the scapes, mint, basil, pine nuts, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Process, adding the oil a bit at a time, until desired consistency. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Makes about 1 1/2 c. pesto.
