Pesto Chicken Pasta

This is another great recipe from Kathie. HeRoos liked it so much he asked for seconds and thirds...shocker! This is another recipe without measurements so good luck guessing. Wait, I just found a similar recipe in my CHOMP book so I added the measurements:

Pesto Chicken Pasta
2 cloves garlic
1/3 C. Olive Oil
1 package Fresh basil
1/3 C. Pine nuts
1/2 C. Parmesan cheese (the real stuff grated)

- Blend basil, garlic, pine nuts & Parmesan in blender/food processor. Continue blending and pour in olive oil. Thin with 2 T. hot water if needed.
- Cook pasta (we used Barilla spaghetti noodles in the yellow box)
- Grill chicken and cut in slices
- Add artichokes, pine nuts, & Parmesan
- Mix everything together

If HeRoos liked it I'm going to try it. Maybe it could take place of the pasta salad he loves. Where do you look for pine-nuts in the grocery store?I don't feel like climbing pine-trees to retrieve the pine-cones w/nuts. Love, G.R.
