    Ot turned out great, and this is the third time l made this. Except this time l drained the pesto sauce in a strainer. Everytime l make it, it be oily. By me doing that it wasn't oily at all, and l used a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese instead of a cup. It wasn't salty either, if you don't want salty food. But overall it was very good and will keep making this recipe.

    I couldn't believe how easy this was to make. I don't like cooking for a long time to make dinner, and this was simple.. came out delicious and made it with penne.

    This turned out amazing. I will definitely make again. It’s gonna be a recipe I use for dinner parties to impress my friends and family! It’s super easy to make and caused no stress while making this. Tastes just like the creamy pesto from Olive Garden (they discontinued it now). It’s a great recipe for people like me who are beginners at cooking.

    I didn't have heavy cream, so I used half and half instead and still delicious.

    This was absolutely delicious and I’m pretty picky with my pastas. The only things I added were cayenne pepper to kick it up garlic and onion powder as well. I will be making this all the time

    This dish was so delicious! I made it as directed but I did marinate the chicken in some red wine vinegar and season it with some roasted garlic and herb seasoning prior to cooking! I also added some sautéed onions and green and red peppers to the sauce. It turned out amazing!
