Hi everyone! This Basil Pesto Pasta is so yummy, creamy, and bursts with flavor! The Roasted Tomatoes really set off the dish in a unique way while the Lemon Garlic Chicken is grilled to perfection and adds the perfect amount of protein as well as completes total delicious outcome. One of my new favorites!

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pasta in a pot of salted water according to directions listed on package, reserve 1/4 cup of the water before draining. Set aside.
