Pesto Chicken Penne

My day job is in finance and its been a bit busy in the last few weeks due to the end of the year audit coming up – so after I get home I am definitely tired but hello! I need to get dinner together for K and the daughter. So one of those busy evenings, I went through the pantry and the fridge and got a meal together in less than 30mins and served it to the family. K and I luvvvvvvvvvvv pesto with all of our heart LOL. Whenever we go to a food show, he usually likes to get pesto since they are always on a good deal in comparison to the supermarket!

So this dish is the third one in our week of Paleo, Vegan and Gluten free recipes. If you have been considering trying GF, this is an easy recipe to try. If you are a vegetarian, pull out the chicken

and put loads of veggies and it will be a very filling meal
