READY IN: 30mins




  • Boil pasta in salted water according to directions on the package.
  • In a large skillet heat olive oil on medium heat.
  • Cut chicken into small pieces, season with salt and pepper and cook in olive oil over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until the outside appears cooked.
  • Add mushrooms and cook for another 4-5 minutes, so they release water.
  • Add pesto sauce and stir until evenly distributed. Continue cooking for another 2 minutes on medium.
  • Add heavy cream, stir and then add blue cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring frequently. The sauce should thicken and get creamy.
  • Add cooked and drained pasta to the sauce and stir to evenly distribute the sauce.
  • Serve with shredded parmesan cheese on top.
