Pesto Penne Pasta with Chicken


This penne pasta dish is made simple with the help from Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce. In the vineyard painted hills and dramatic coastlines that Northern Italy has to offer the birth of pesto was created in Genoa, the Liguria region. Our tender sun dried tomatoes combined with whole pine nuts, basil, and parmesan cheese make for a fresh, robust, sun dried tomato pesto. Not far from traditional basil pesto, but with an added sweetness from sun dried tomatoes.
