DIRECTIONS

  • Boil water for pasta, cook according to package directions, removing from heat when al dente.
  • Drain.
  • In a small bowl, combine yoghurt and pesto, stir well to combine.
  • Set aside.
  • In non-stick skillet, over medium to medium-high heat, cook mushrooms just until tender.
  • I don't use oil, you may prefer a little oil or butter.
  • Spoon cooked mushrooms into bowl with pesto mixture.
  • In same skillet, cook chicken until done (again, I don't use oil).
  • Leave in pan, but remove from heat.
  • Add pesto mixture with mushrooms and add drained pasta to chicken in pan.
  • Mix well.
  • Taste for seasoning, add fresh ground pepper and red pepper flakes, if desired.
  • Spoon into serving bowl, garnish with tomato and fresh basil.
  • This can easily be doubled or quadrupled.
