This Easy Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta comes together in about 30 minutes with simple recipe! Creamy, cheesy and full of flavor, this dish will quickly be a new favorite! While those little packets are probably great for camping, stocking a bomb shelter, or keeping in your emergency hurricane supplies, I think regular weeknights call for something better.
