Pesto Tortellini with Cherry Tomatoes and Grilled Chicken – It doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious

Pesto Tortellini with Cherry Tomatoes


Make it simple.

This is almost always my motto when it comes to dinner.

You really don’t need a recipe for this.  And you’ve probably made a version of it for your family many times.  But sometimes it’s nice to have a reminder of easy meals.

Enter this Pesto Tortellini with Grilled Chicken.

Here’s what you’ll need:  

Pesto Tortellini with Cherry Tomatoes ingr


I use two bags of frozen tortellini for my family of 6 and about half of the pesto sauce.  The tomatoes are what we picked from the garden.  I only added them for those of us who eat tomatoes.  If all 6 of us were eating tomatoes, we would have needed a lot more.

If you don’t want to fire up the grill for the chicken, you can pan fry it.  Or skip the chicken altogether.

Serve this with a green salad and crusty, hot bread.

I’m almost embarrassed to post this.  But then, why not?  It’s an easy, delicious meal that can be on the table in about 20 minutes or less.

Sounds about perfect to me!

    How funny you posted this yesterday. This is what we had for dinner(before I saw your post) – except I used red peppers instead of tomatoes…you know what they say about great minds:)

  2. Do you cook the tomatoes at all?

    This was great! I fried the chicken in olive oil and garlic and it was fantastic.
