If you like pesto and sun dried tomatoes, this recipe is for you.
  • 8 oz pasta
  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • ¾ cup pesto (homemade is best)
  • ½ cup sun dried tomatoes julienne and drained
  • ½ cup diced mozzarella cubes
  • ¾ cup of canned corn
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (I use pre-baked rotisserie chicken from the store)
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F
  2. In a large pot of boiling and salted water, cook pasta according to the package instructions and drain well.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place trimmed asparagus in a large bowl and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Place in oven and roast for 8-10 minutes. Let cool before cutting into one inch pieces.
  4. Heat corn in a pot on the stove.
  5. In a very large bowl, combine drained, cooked pasta with the pesto until it is evenly distributed. Then, toss in the asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, corn, shredded chicken and mozzarella cubes.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
