Pesto Chicken & Pasta (Gluten-Free)


This is a quick-to-fix dish with ground chicken, mushrooms, zucchini and pesto served over gluten-free (or regular) pasta. I used organic corn/quinoa rotini pasta but any pasta you prefer would work well with this dish. You could also use diced chicken thigh meat instead of ground if you prefer. Gluten-free, heart healthy and very tasty.
